The Head Gardeners

Author(s): Toby Musgrave

Garden History | Don McMillan

Angus McAllister, the iron-willed ruler of the gardens at Blanding's Castle who reduced his employer, Lord Emsworth, to abject pleading when he threatened to resign, and Sir Joseph Paxton, designer of the Crystal Palace, are just two examples, one fictional, one historical, of an extraordinary group of men who fluorished in the golden age of the British country house in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Very good, almost new condition
