Paradise and plenty, a Rothschild family garden
Publication year: 2015
Media class: Hardback
The productive garden at Lord Rothschild's private house, Eythrope in Buckinghamshire, is legendary in the garden world for the excellence of the gardening and as a haven for traditional techniques that might otherwise be lost. Under the leadership of the renowned head gardener, Sue Dickinson, this garden works on a scale that is now rare, producing, year-round, all the fruit, vegetables and flowers for a country house where entertaining still happens on a grand scale and where everything is done to the highest standards. 'Paradise and Plenty' opens a window on a garden that has, until now, been kept intensely private, and on a world beyond most gardeners' dreams.
As well as an enjoyable read, was surprised that there were lots of useful tips for keen gardeners with only a small garden!
