Hugh Johnson bought the large garden at Saling Hall 40 years ago. He knew a lot about wine but not a lot about gardening so he taught himself by writing a book, THE PRINCIPLES OF GARDENING, which became an international bestseller for Dorling Kindersley. Since then he has expanded and continually refashioned his large and famous garden, travelling widely to look at other gardens all over the world. Many of the fruits of these garden visits he imported to Saling which, together with a garden in France, became his garden laboratory. Here he constantly experiments with plant combinations and other effects in both the formal and the more informal gardens. The results of these experiments he has passed on in the form of advice to the avid readers of his column. In this beautifully written and lavishly illustrated book he has distilled a highly original blend of 40 years of practical experience, of garden visits on every continent and an encyclopaedic knowledge of gardeners and gardening of different styles and periods.
