Product Description

?An enchanting and original account of Beatrix Potter's life and her love of plants and gardening.? ?Judy Taylor, vice president of the Beatrix Potter Society

There aren?t many books more beloved than The Tale of Peter Rabbit and even fewer authors as iconic as Beatrix Potter. More than 150 million copies of her books have sold worldwide and interest in her work and life remains high. And her characters?Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle Duck, and all the rest?exist in a charmed world filled with flowers and gardens. Beatrix Potter?s Gardening Life is the first book to explore the origins of Beatrix Potter?s love of gardening and plants and show how this passion came to be reflected in her work. The book begins with a gardener?s biography, highlighting the key moments and places throughout her life that helped define her, including her home Hill Top Farm in England's Lake District. Next, the reader follows Beatrix Potter through a year in her garden, with a season-by-season overview of what is blooming that truly brings her gardens alive. The book culminates in a traveler?s guide, with information on how and where to visit Potter?s gardens today.
