`Informative and entertaining book provides the perfect introduction to the history of our garden making.' * The Sunday Times * 'Until now, Jenny Uglow's 'A Little History of British Gardening' has been the best short treatment of its subject, but 'The Story of the English Garden' now supersedes it. This elegant synthesis of existing scholarship is almost as well written as Mrs Uglow's book, but is better on historical discrimination and detail.' -- Country Life Magazine * Book Review * 'Sumptuous illustrated guide.' -- Good Housekeeping Magazine * Book Review *
