Rosemary Verey: The Life and Lessons of a Legendary Gardener
picture
Features:-
Rosemary Verey was the last of the great English garden legends. Although she embraced gardening late in life, she quickly achieved international renown. She was the acknowledged apostle of the "English style," on display at her home at Barnsley House, the "must have" adviser to the rich and famous, including Prince Charles and Elton John, and a beloved and wildly popular lecturer in America. A child of a generation born between the two World Wars, she could have easily lived a predictable and comfortable life, devoted to her family, church, and horses, but a devastating accident changed her life, and with her architect-husband, she went on to create the gardens at their home that became a mandatory stop on every garden tour in the 1980s and 1990s. At sixty-two, she wrote her first book, followed by seventeen more in twenty years. Her husband s death, shortly after her career began, added a financial imperative to her ambition. By force of character, hard work, and determination, she tirelessly promoted herself and her garden lessons, traveling worldwide to lecture, sell books, and strengthen her network.

She was a natural teacher, encouraging her American fans to believe that they were fully capable of creating beautiful gardens while validating their quest for a native vernacular. She also re-introduced the English to their own gardening traditions. Drawing from garden history and its literature, she developed a language of classical formal design, embellished with her exuberant planting style. Here is her story, recounted by a successful Manhattan attorney who worked with her as a volunteer, who saw her as both a person and a professional, and who was close to her for the last twenty years of her life. A demanding and sometimes truculent taskmaster, and a relentless perfectionist, Rosemary Verey, in her life as in her work, was the very personification of the English garden style. Her influence will be felt for generations.

The Garden Gate: The Library of Garden Detail
picture
Features:-
This series from Pavilion highlights a unique approach to detailed garden design through an attractive combination of close-up photographs and informative text. Published as a set of pocket-sized books, this series is specially designed to lead the eye straight to the heart of the garden focussing on those individual details so important to the overall design of your garden. Garden gates may be practical, romantic or ornamental; they may serve to keep the world out or entice it in. whether they are made of metal or wood, solid or openwork, the siting, colour and surrounds of a gate are all crucial to the design. Rosemary Verey discusses all these aspects and urges us to look at gates wherever we go - from the grand wrought iron gates of a country estate to the charm of a small white wicket gate framed with roses - to analyse their success or failure, and to choose with discrimination. In doing so she provides much practical help. She also awakens our critical faculties: are they inviting; do they add dignity, strength and satisfaction; or do they give you an urge to remove them? The authors books include "The Scented Garden", "Classic Garden Design" and "The Garden in Winter". She also writes regularly for "The Field".
