The garden created by Rosemary Verey at Barnsley House, Gloucestershire, is one of England's finest and most famous. This is Rosemary Verey's personal tour of her garden, an account of the process of making it, including not only successes and the realization of dreams but also changes as the garden evolved. She explains different gardening skills, including creating an all-seasons garden, making a decorative vegetable garden, choosing the best bulbs, and placing focal points such as statues and fountains.
