The illustrated Virago book of women gardeners

By: Kellaway, D. (ed.)

Price: £8.00

Publisher: Virago Press: 1995

Edition: 1st edition

Seller ID: 20135

ISBN: 0 316 85247 3

Condition: Fine


With a rather limited selection of already famous women garden writers, the book makes no attempt to reach back into the 18th century where women garden writers were very few in number. It often refers to the plants favoured by particular women gardeners, though it isn't made clear whether it is their gender that determines the selection. Still, Virago deserves credit for being quick off the mark in anthologising what has become a 21st century obsession. The inclusion of Germaine Greer, erstwhile ÒRose BlightÓ of Private Eye, is an interesting choice. View more info
