In the Garden
with Jane Austen
In the Garden with Jane Austen brings Georgian and Regency gardens to life with an illustrated tour of English gardens, from tiny cottage gardens, to the gardens of the grand estates, to the gardens Jane Austen herself knew and loved - and reveals the secrets to making your own Jane Austen garden!
"Wonderfully informative, full of detail, illustrated with ravishing photographs - a must for any Austen fan."
Andrew Davies, screenwriter, Pride & Prejudice and Sanditon
"A charming book, full of interesting snippets and comment, expounding on the references to gardens in the Austen novels, and discussing the sort of outdoor scenes Jane would have known... A pretty book which would make a delightful gift."
House & Garden
"A book to delight garden lovers and fans of Jane Austen alike."
“This gorgeous book reflects on Jane Austen's interest in kitchen and flower gardening which is documented in her letters and in her novels. With gorgeous photographs the author gives instruction on how to create your own Georgian or Regency garden and is full of fascinating nuggets of information about early cottage and rectory gardens and the plants used in them.”
RHS Ireland Journal
“This book is only 114 pages long, but Kim Wilson has been skilled in her selection of gardens and it would be valuable to a garden historian, a lover of Jane Austen and anyone who likes a lovely book.”
Hampshire Gardens Trust magazine
“A thoroughly comprehensive and diverting book.”
Limited Edition, South Worcestershire & Cotswolds
“Ms Wilson has had great fun with her own tour, performing the stations of sensibility wherever Jane Austen or her characters . . . chanced to turn their eye; she even gives telephone numbers so that we too may follow suit. The excellent photographs will certainly encourage.”
