Notes: This out-of-print classic is one of the last works of renowned British gardener, horticulturalist, historian, novelist and writer, and anarchist, Edward Hyams. Written from the perspective on an English gardener, this book provides instruction for those wishing to garden for, "exercise, for fresh produce, or because you are a vegetarian."
