View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In 1930, Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson fell in love with a neglected Elizabethan castle in Kent - Sissinghurst. They restored the house, but it is the garden they created - and which is now owned by the National Trust - that attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year. From the Nicolson's notes, diaries and letters, the author records how the garden was made, how the Nicolson-Sackville-West gardening partnership worked and how the garden became one of the strongest bonds holding their marriage together. The author also wrote "Down to Earth", "The Cottage Garden", "The Language of the Garden" and "Gardening Letters to My Daughter".
