Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932) was an artist, craftswoman, writer, and gardener; she is perhaps the most famous garden designers of her time. ‘Gardens for Small Country Houses’ was first published by Country Life in 1912, at a time when both Jekyll and Weaver were writing for the magazine. It covers the period when the Arts and Crafts Movement had evolved into country house architecture then complemented with gardens in the current style. ‘Gardens for Small Country Houses’ is a practical handbook which combines invaluable information on period garden design, insights into craftsmanship, planting relationships and garden restoration, and creates a fascinating and now classic text. Gertrude Jekyll’s co-author, Sir Lawrence Weaver (1876-1930), was architectural editor of Country Life. He became a civil servant during the First World War (1914-1918); in 1919, he founded National Institute of Agricultural Botany, Cambridge.
