"Not primarily to tell you what to do in your garden, but how to enjoy it..." I think the front flap of my edition says it well. To be honest, Rothery's book "sounds" to me a little like a very educated and venerable spinster aunt, sometimes a little wearying, sometimes a little baffling (as in 'over my head'), but usually fascinating. Her writing is very upper-crust without being patronizing or impossible to do on one's own and is culled from an amazing number of resources. She offers up history lessons, some philosophy, some favorite hints and a great dose of sentimentality. All in all a great book.
