Created in the shell of a moated sixteenth-century manor house, the celebratedgarden at Sissinghurst has a romantic aspect which is unsurpassed.
First created by Vita Sackville-West and her husband, Harold Nicolson, in the 1930's it has been in the care of the National Trust since 1967.
Jane Brown's fascinating text records the history of the house - the transformation wrought by the creation of the garden, its rare and special plants, and above all the spirit and inspiration behind it.
John Miller's photographs capture the stunning views that characterise Sissinghurst: the famous White Garden, the central tower, the cottage garden and the orchard carpeted with bulbs in springtime.
