Vita Sackville-West's Sissinghurst

Poet and bestselling author, Vita Sackville-West, is well known as the creator of Sissinghurst Castle Garden and in this extraordinary book her lifelong passion for horticulture truly comes to life. The book, co-written by writer Sarah Raven, draws on the archive of columns Vita once wrote for the Observer, as well as revealing her most loved flowers and inspiration for the garden.

Sissinghurst is today one of the most visited National Trust gardens and in this beautiful book readers are shown just how it was created through illustrations and original photographs, including how gardeners can use some of the ideas from both Sarah Raven and Vita Sackville-West themselves.

A beautiful story that is packed with gardening advice, from training shrub roses to flowers perfect for cutting in every season, there is something to offer every gardener or garden enthusiast in this glorious hardback book.

Vita Sackville-West's Sissinghurst, published by Virago, is available to buy from all good books stores, RRP £30.
