A fountain of flowers
This is an essay on the pleasures and adventures of the author's own gardening life. Whenever he was asked how he had planned his Kentish garden, he replied, "I didn't. It evolved". He was always interested in unusual plants and new ideas, for he believed a garden "should never stand still. It should never be a monument to complacency."
