Churchill and Chartwell: The Untold Story of Churchill's Houses and Gardens
picture
Features:-
This book is a biography of Winston Churchill through the houses he lived in and the gardens he made. It culminates with the full story of his purchase, alteration and creation of Chartwell, Kent, where he lived for more than 40 years before and after the war, and which is now, in keeping with his intentions, owned and run by the National Trust. Churchill was born amidst the splendour of Blenheim Palace but, ever a restless spirit, he owned or rented many houses, both grand and relatively modest, over the course of his long life, including country retreats, modern town apartments and, as First Lord of the Admiralty, Admiralty House. But it was his house at Chartwell that would be for ever associated with his name. Based on extensive and scholarly archive study, this unique book brings to light an array of previously unpublished details and reveals a fascinating side to Britain's greatest war leader.

Creating a Victorian Flower Garden
picture
Features:-
For the gardener, the late Victorian period is one of a particular interest. Alice Drummond-Hay's paintings illustrate a surprising range of native vegetation as well as exotic plants whose importation was encouraged by Britain's pre-eminent position as an imperial and trading power. Stefan Buczacki writes about the plants and describes their place in the late Victorian flower garden. He explains how they can be cultivated today by anyone interested in creating a period feel in his or her garden or simply in growing specific plants. He discusses how some varieties differ from those we are familiar with today, and their merits - then and now. Growing advice is given, together with guidance on the style and techniques of Victorian gardening, making this a uniquely practical book.
