Adam Nicolson's Sissinghurst: An Unfinished History

Even if you're not an Anglophile or garden-geek, there's a lot to like in Adam Nicolson's new history and contemporary update of his life at Sissinghurst -- the world-renowned English garden created by his grandparents -- where he now lives, re-making it with the new (renewed) dimension of an organic farm and sustainable... land use. Captures all the typical conflicts of land use and stakeholder claims -- aesthetics and practicality. Well worth the read.
