They restored the house, but it is the garden they created - and which is now owned by the National Trust - that attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year. From the Nicolsons notes, diaries and letters, the author records how the garden was made, how the Nicolson-Sackville-West gardening partnership worked and how the garden became one of the strongest bonds holding their marriage together. The author also wrote Down to Earth, The Cottage Garden, The Language of the Garden and Gardening Letters to My Daughter.
