For Sir Francis Bacon it was 'the purest of human pleasures' and the love of the garden and gardening is the first theme of this beautifully illustrated anthology, presenting prose and poetry ranging from Diodorus Siculus' description of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon to Edward Thomas's lines in praise of bonfire smoke. Following 'Lovers of Gardens' the book explores three more themes: garden design; the practical business of gardening; and the ways in which gardens and gardening offer solace to the soul.
