Gardens take many forms, and have a variety of functions. They can serve as spaces of peace and tranquilty, a way to cultivate wildlife, or as places to develop agricultural resources. Globally, gardens have inspired, comforted, and sustained people from all walks of life, and since the Garden of Eden many iconic gardens have inspired great artists, poets, musicians, and writers. In this short history, Gordon Campbell embraces gardens in all their splendour, from parks, and fruit and vegetable gardens to ornamental gardens, and takes the reader on a globe-trotting historical journey through iconic and cultural signposts of gardens from different regions and traditions. Ranging from the gardens of ancient Persia to modern day allotments, he concludes by looking to the future of the garden in the age of global warming, and the adaptive spirit of human innovation.

Old Nectar is South Africa's most famous private garden and its creator and constant gardener, Una van der Spuy, takes us through it in this title, sharing a lifetime of knowledge and experience about gardening and plants. Una van der Spuy is one of South Africa's best-known gardeners, the author of nine gardening books, and the garden she has created at her home, Old Nectar, in the Jonkershoek Valley near Stellenbosch, has been visited and admired for decades. Now an irrepressible 97, still active and enthusiastic, Una van der Spuy has distilled a lifetime of knowledge and experience in this volume about her famous garden, which, as well as being a National Monument, features regularly in overseas books and magazines. This work, illustrated with some 200 photographs, shows off the several different gardens that make up Una van der Spuy's creation and provides a wealth of information that will help readers choose plants to suit their particular climatic conditions. It is a book to treasure; a tribute to a grand lady and her entrancing garden.
