A Country Garden, Armitage, Ethel
1 Armitage, Ethel A Country Garden
London Country Life 1936 Hardcover Excellent-very Good Very Good 22.5cm John Farleigh 
I have seen copies in excess of two hundred pounds so this is a great buy, intact dj with just a few nicks to bottom. Book has a collection of charming lineart by John Farleigh (24 in all incl violets, magnolias, cabbages & roses) The contents represent a beautiful journal of a year in a gardener's life in pre-war Britain. Armitage is also the author of "Garden & hedgerow" "Flower and Leaf" . Armitage must have been a force to be reckoned with - this extract focuses on the German's ideals of planting under the Nazis - quote - Ethel Armitage, in her book A County Garden, published just before World War Two, wrote of ground elder as 'a veritable Hun, overrun-ning any place it can get near ... [it] is no true Briton at all, having begun its career here as an undesirable alien'." The plant in the garden, the ground elder, is a microcosm of the threat of invasion by Nazi Germany, so that Armitage's garden is a metonym for Britain itself. . . . well indeed much of Britain's landscape & garden history is amazing so good for her to adopt the Churchillian stance. A really great floraholic's addition for their library.

3 Peplow, Elizabeth & Reginald In a Monastery Garden
USA David & Charles 1988 Hardcover Excellent Excellent 25cm 
800g for posting, 185 crisp pp, lots of line art, photos & colour illustrations. Monastic communities were designed to be largely self sufficient. The monks needed to grow all the plant material they required for their daily survival such as foods, seasonings, medications, dye plants, aromatics, pest and insect control. review >>> It's full of interesting information, especially interesting to medieval buffs and herbal gardeners like me, but well written enough to enchant those not already committed to those interests. Nicely illustrated, too.
