"Few books whet the appetite like the Yellow Book. Where will it send me this year, I wonder, and what little truffles will I unearth?" --Steven Lacey

"Where else do you find so many private gardens full of good plants and good ideas, all made by individuals and, best of all, made for the sheer love of gardening? The luxury of it! Where else could you look?" --Stephen Anderton

"There are useless books, useful books and just a few really useful books. The Yellow Book is more than a really useful book--it is an institution; without it the summer for countless garden gazers would not be the same." --Dr D G Hessayon

"Inspiration is as vital to the gardener as organic matter is to the garden, and visiting other people's gardens is the best source there is. The National Gardens Scheme has always been valuable in this regard and it's encouraging to see more and more small town gardens, to which so many of us can easily relate, included in the Yellow Book" --Gay Search

Review:

Few books whet the appetite like the Yellow Book. "Where will it send me this year, I wonder? And what little truffles will I unearth?"

This is an excellent book, already a bestseller that contains information on almost 3,500 high-standard and quality gardens of every possible size and style which are open to the public and which, between them, give more than a million pounds a year to nearly a dozen charities.

The gardens--most of which are privately owned--are all truly outstanding, having attained the high standard of quality and interest, the hallmarks of the national garden scheme, to enable them to be included. Anyone from the reluctant gardener to the true expert can enjoy these gardens, many of which offer plants for sale and refreshments. The information in the book is clear and concise, making it easy to use. The gardens are grouped alphabetically by county, the Welsh gardens having their own section. Each entry gives the general location, directions, brief description and details of openings and arrangements and there is a diary at the beginning of each county giving a summary of openings with maps and contacts.

Gardens of England and Wales Open for Charity also contains a host of other information and advertisements about charities, associations, tours, gardens, nurseries and plants. According to one fan, Dr D G Hessayon: "There are useless books, useful books and just a few really useful books. The Yellow Book is more than a really useful book--it is an institution". --Susan Naylor
