Like cooking, much garden advice is timeless. So vintage garden books are not only interesting historically, but offer practical knowledge as well. I was pleased that the colors of this book haven't faded with time. I think I will refer to it often, if only to look at the beautiful photographs taken at Bressingham Gardens in England. However, it is also filled with timeless advice regarding perennial varieties.
If you'd like to take a virtual tour of Bressingham Gardens, check out this youtube video of Adrian Bloom, Alan Blooms son.
