Product Description:

In this exchange of personal letters two of Britain's leading gardeners - Christopher Lloyd and Beth Chatto - share their successes and failures, and learn from each other's experiences in their two very different gardens.

Review:

... a delightful collection of letters ... offers a unique insight into their successes and failures. Candid, amusing, revealing and informative

(Daily Telegraph )

My favourite read of the year is this entertaining correspondence between our two greatest living gardeners

(Sunday Telegraph Magazine )

What links and distinguishes (in both senses) these two writers is that they never pass on a received opinion about a plant or gardening practice or theory. Everything they say is rooted firmly in observation and experience so their thoughts and opinions carry weight and value

(Hardy Plant )

It is this book, I suspect, that many gardeners would most like to find at the ends of their beds when they wake up on Christmas morning
