This book outlines what is probably the greatest collection of old roses in Britain as displayed at the magnificent Mottisfont Abbey. With great depth, Mr. Thomas outlines each rose and their companions and how this garden came into being as it grows today. An excellent read.
In “Great Gardens of Britain”, he outlines how the National Trust came into being and how it has grown into the “gatekeepers” of Britain’s magnificent public gardens. He takes you on a wonderful journey through some of these jewels. I hope to finish this book by the end of August.
