Treasury Of Garden Verse (book)


Sun and rain, spaid and hoe, slugs and weeds and roses, roses all the way. Here is The Royal Horticultural Society's celebration of the garden, spanning the centuries and the globe. From the Garden of Eden to small backyards, from scented memories to bonfires and neighbours' rights, from suggestive slugs to paranoid palm-house gardeners, the poems burst out in a biodiversity of fun, exotic beauty and earthly philosophy. There's something for everyone, with a glorious array of gardening classics, perennial favourites and more recent contributions. [1]
