The Gardener's Bed-Book: Short and Long Pieces to Be Read in Bed by Those Who Love Green Growing Things by Richardson Wright

Availability: In stock (4)
First published in 1929, The Gardener's Bed-Book is a much beloved classic. Written by the renowned editor of House & Garden magazine in the 1920s and ’30s, each of its 365 entries is meant to be read in bed at night after a long day’s work in the garden (either real or imagined). A charming and mischievously funny companion to curl up with, the tales range lyrically-from giving gardening advice to meditations on antique collecting and travel, literature and architecture. The book is an addictive delight, as memorable when describing the challenges of growing plume poppies as describing the simple pleasure of hanging up the dish towel once the housework is done (same!). A constant classic (and a great gift for the green-thumbed among us).
