Some Flowers - National Trust Home & Garden (Hardback)Vita Sackville-West (author), Graham Rust (illustrator), National Trust Books (illustrator)
A fresh edition of a gardening classic. Vita Sackville-West's affectionate tribute to her 25 favourite plants is brought to life in these beautifully expressive pen-portraits. An attractive gift for a new generation of gardening enthusiasts.
In Some Flowers, originally published in 1937, Vita Sackville-West took the novel step of choosing 25 of her favourite flowers and describing their appearance, origins and characteristics - and the best ways to grow them - in a series of brilliantly expressive pen portraits which retain their vitality over 70 years later.
In this fresh edition of the book the exquisite watercolours of Graham Rust provide a perfect marriage of words and images, clearly demonstrating at last the accuracy and ingenuity of Vita Sackville-West's descriptions. This glorious second flowering of her personal, erudite and poetical book will not only delight her many admirers but also guarantee her reputation with a new generation of gardening enthusiasts.
