Marta McDowell combines the skills of a historian, biographer and gardener as she explores Beatrix Potter's passion for plants. Her book combines rich visuals with quotations from the writer's works, letters and diaries, to introduce the reader to Beatrix Potter's Lake District gardens. The author's passion for her subject and her own horticultural knowledge provide new insights for the reader, as she frames Beatrix Potter's works in the context of her gardening life.
