A charming, fascinating and knowledgeable account of a year in the garden of E.V.B. - Eleanor Vere Boyle, which was written over the year 1882/1883. This is believed to be the first reprint in 100 years of the eighth edition, which was published in 1892. The garden was at Huntercombe Manor (then in Buckinghamshire), the history of which goes back to the Domesday Book, and a short account of that history is included, together with a biography of E.V.B. - who was a well-known Victorian author and illustrator. All who love gardens will find this book a joy and delight.
