Inspiring Gardeners:

'You’ve seen the county’s glorious gardens, now find out about the garden designers, plant hunters and botanical brains behind them. What makes their green thumbs prick, why do they feel so passionate about all things horticultural? There are as many types of gardener as there are styles of garden, and Lorraine Harrison has done well to fit so many into such a small plot, from the well-known – Rudyard Kipling, the Lloyds of Great Dixter and the Loders of Wakehurst and Leonardslee – to the obscure, such as Oliver Cockerell and Helen Nussey with their French hot beds. We look at the gardeners behind public parks and spaces and those whose small private paradises are so enthralling, catch some of Angus White’s boundless enthusiasm for his architectural plants and even peer over the county fence to look at Derek Jarman’s wonderful painterly garden in Dungeness. And there’s a directory of those who didn’t make first prize in the show. With a foreword by the renowned John Brookes, doyen of garden design, this is an unmissable guide for gardeners of both the armchair and dibber-wielding kind.'
