HARDY PERENNIALS AND OLD-FASHIONED GARDEN FLOWERS

Describing the most desirable plants for borders, rockeries and shrubberies, including foliage as well as flowering plants by John Wood 1884 Illustrated.

I discovered this old book, now to be found as an e-book on the web.

All modes of culture are given from specimens successfully grown in the author's own garden.

Just like me, and my blog!

Click on the illustration above, showing A Corner of the Author's Garden at Kirkstall, to read and gather information from this charming old book.

So many beautiful posts I’ve missed…I’m going too pop back at lunch time so I can really enjoy them all.

Love Lou xxx

What a lovely book. I loved your photos of Exbury, I remember visiting there many years ago at this time of year. Catherine x

I love beautiful old books, they have so much more character that the new ones.
Louise, your pictures are nothing short of divine, you truly capture the essense of your subjects:)
