Inspiration for gardeners everywhere! Margery Fish’s classic work on creating a cottage garden is back in print in a brand-new edition. In the 1960s, Margery Fish and her husband Walter decided to transform an acre of wilderness into a stunning cottage garden. The beautiful and timeless We Made a Garden recounts the trials and tribulations, successes and failures, of her venture with ease and humor—from choosing the most suitable hyssop for the terraced garden to battling with her husband on the best approach. It has been hailed as everything from a blueprint for the creation of a modern cottage garden to a feminist manifesto. Fish’s good sense, practical knowledge, and imaginative ideas will inspire gardeners everywhere.
