Kiftsgate in Gloucestershire has belonged to the same family for the last hundred years with three women gardeners each with their own ideas, building on the work of their predecessor. What is remarkable about the garden is that the sense of continuity has not been lost as each generation has added their own signature to the garden. Vanessa Berridge has had exclusive access to the family archives which contain ‘not only family photographs but also letters from their gardening friends, helping us to understand why and how Heather, Diany and Anne have gardened’. [Merrell Publishers] Berridge also takes us on a tour of the garden. A beautifully written and illustrated book on one of the greatest gardens of England.
The book has been published to coincide with the centenary of the garden at Kiftsgate and the opening of an exhibition at the Garden Museum.
With a foreword by Robin Lane Fox.
