Inspiration for gardeners everywhere! Margery Fish's classic work on creating a cottage garden is back in print in a brand-new edition.
In the 1960s, Margery Fish and her husband Walter decided to transform an acre of wilderness into a stunning cottage garden. The beautiful and timeless We Made a Garden recounts the trials and tribulations, successes and failures, of her venture with ease and humor--from choosing the most suitable hyssop for the terraced garden to battling with her husband on the best approach. It has been hailed as everything from a blueprint for the creation of a modern cottage garden to a feminist manifesto. Fish's good sense, practical knowledge, and imaginative ideas will inspire gardeners everywhere.
