"When Jill Parker and her husband bought a disused farm with five and a half acres of seedy farmland, she knew virtually nothing about gardening. The farm came complete with derelict outhouses, old chicken-runs, concrete pigsties and dilapidated sheds roofed in corrugated iron. But to Jill Parker, it was to be the garden she had been looking for, a garden which she would simply have to create from scratch. The Purest of Pleasures is the fascinating story of that garden in the making and its gradual transformation, under the hand of an enthusiastic plantswoman, from these unpromising beginnings into a thing of grace and beauty."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
