Essential reading
COUNTRY LIFE
The text is lucid, informative and light-hearted; beautifully and usefully illustrated

He was the best informed, liveliest and most innovative gardening writer of our times

Christopher Lloyd ranks with Gertrude Jekyll and Vita Sackville-West as one of the major figures in twentieth-century British gardening
THE TIMES
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 taught us that we don't necessarily have to do things very differently - just better, and with all our heart
