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 Based on extensive and scholarly archive study, this unique book brings to light an array of previously unpublished details and reveals a fascinating side to Britain's greatest war leader.

Features:-
Over 6,000 plants, an A-Z index of 1,000 English common names (all cross-referenced), and 500 full-color photographs make this the essential plant guide for gardeners.

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.

My Darling Mr Asquith: The Extraordinary Life and Times of Venetia Stanley
picture
Features:-
This is the true story of one woman's life set against the backcloth of the great events of the first half of the twentieth century. Its subject, the Hon Venetia Stanley was remarkable for what she was, what she did and the people she knew. So it is a tale that embraces politics, sex, scandal, love and betrayal, the English aristocracy, the Asquiths and the Churchills, but also touches on strange (and some very strange) goings on in the social world of society in the 1920s and 1930s, homosexuality in high places, cross-dressing, gardening, the power of money, derring-do, pioneering aviation, antisemitism and racial prejudice, the Boer war, the Spanish civil war, two world wars, evacuee children, famine in the Soviet Union, the most remarkable match in the history of cricket, the Curragh incident, the Easter uprising, Lady Diana Cooper, Lloyd George, Lawrence of Arabia, Scott of the Antarctic, Ernest Hemingway, the Rothschilds, Beaverbrook, Gandhi, the Amritsar massacre and the Raj, the financial problems of Brazil, a cast of hundreds (many of them slightly odd) and much else besides.Isaiah Berlin said after meeting her '...handsome, smart, awful woman, celebrated society wit I am told, but quite genuinely clever and entertaining, only very awful'. Churchill's daughter, the late Mary Soames who knew her well as a close friend and relative said to me, 'She was rum, you know!'
