Publisher Review

British horticulture is blessed with many inspired plantsmen and elegant writers, but rarely do those qualities combine as seamlessly as in Christopher Lloyd * INDEPENDENT * Christopher Lloyd taught us that we don't necessarily have to do things very differently - just better, and with all our heart * SPECTATOR * A gardening classic, as essential to every gardener as a sharp pair of secateurs or a good space -- Carol Klein on THE WELL-TEMPERED GARDEN He was the most interesting plantsman I have ever known -- Alan Titchmarsh Christopher Lloyd ranks with Gertrude Jekyll and Vita Sackville-West as one of the major figures in twentieth-century British gardening * THE TIMES * He was the best informed, liveliest and most innovative gardening writer of our times * GUARDIAN * The text is lucid, informative and light-hearted; beautifully and usefully illustrated * HOUSE & GARDEN * Essential reading * COUNTRY LIFE * Lloyd writes as if he were talking, volubly and well. He is funny, encouraging, informative * SUNDAY TIMES *
