....set firmly in the coffee-table class, but on reading it you discover there's some real grit beneath the gloss. -- The Kitchen Garden, November 2001, Just Out by Andrew BlackfordFrom the Publisher:
This fascinating book by Marylyn Abbott traces the history of the potager, from its romantic roots in medieval Europe to its cutting edge interpretations all over the world today. Infinitely flexible this style of garden has absorbed the past 1,000 years of human history and spread to every corner of the globe. It moderates temperature, mazimises space and provides an oasis of sheltered calm. It also affords considerable room for individual expression. Marylyn also celebrates the individuality and quirkiness of potagers from America, Australia, Britian and continental Europe. For the reader inspired by the true spirit of the potager there are ideas to recreate, design pointers and planting tips throughout, that create a mixture of inspirational, yet practical advice to aid the design of a productive and beautiful garden.
