Royal Horticultural Society, RHS The Garden Anthology Book Release and Blog Giveaway

RHS the garden anthology book cover

I’m excited to reveal the following book release, published 2nd October 2014 by Frances Lincoln ( | @Frances_Lincoln), priced £16.99. Read on to find out how you could WIN a copy!

RHS The Garden Anthology presents more than 100 years of the best writing in The Garden magazine, the respected journal of the Royal Horticultural Society.

Edited by Ursula Buchan, this collection features the work of 80 of the world’s most celebrated gardeners, from Gertrude Jekyll and E A Bowles in the early 20th century to the contemporary commentators James Wong, Nigel Slater, John Brookes and Tim Richardson.

This anthology paints a rich and intriguing picture of what gardening means today, revealing key moments in a time of intense change. The writers tell of plant-hunting and new gardening practises, fashion and growing food, whilst shedding light on the inner landscape of the thoughtful gardener.

From announcing the first news of Gregor Mendel’s experiments on genetics in 1900, to a report on the memorial garden at Ground Zero in Manhattan in 2011, Ursula Buchan selects the most important and atmospheric pieces to inspire, inform and sometimes amuse. This anthology provides the perfect literary companion for garden lovers and gardeners alike.

With thanks to Frances Lincoln publishers you could win a copy! To enter the book giveaway simply leave a comment on this post, one lucky reader will have their name drawn at random on Tuesday 14th October and I will contact the winner so please make sure you leave a valid email address with your comment.

The giveaway is open to UK residents only – sorry!

  1. We joined the RHS this year and have a stack of magazines that we have yet to read – hopefully something for the winter months. I wish the mag was avaiable electronically as I end up with a big pile to find a home for.


  2. Thank you for blogging again. I love the pics of the change in season and the new shed colour. This book would make a great addition to my bookshelf .


  3. I had no idea that The garden magazine had been written for 100 years, great idea for a book. Yes please, I would love to win this!


  4. being relatively new in the gardening world, would be interesting to look back in history a bit more & hopefully will help me with my new allotment & garden :)


  5. Sounds fantastic. 14th October would be my Grannie’s birthday, she loved her garden, I am loving mine more each year :-)
