Description
 

"Dan Hinkley is a rare man, generous, inspired, and gifted with an eye for beauty that is given to few people. How I long to wander again in the galloping beauty of his garden at Windcliff. Here it is, in all its inspiring wonder." --Anna Pavord, author of Landskipping and The Curious Gardener

Daniel Hinkley is widely recognized as one of the foremost modern plant explorers and one of the worlds leading plant collectors. He has created two outstanding private gardens--Heronswood and Windcliff. Both gardens, and the story of how one begat the other, are beautifully celebrated in Hinkleys new book, Windcliff.

In these pages you will delight in Hinkleys recounting of the creation of his garden, the stories of the plants that fill its space, and in his sage gardening advice. Hinkleys spirited ruminations on the audacity and importance of garden-making--contemplations on the beauty of a sunflower turning its neck from dawn to dusk, the way a plants scent can spur a memory, and much more--will appeal to the hearts of every gardener.

Filled with Claire Takacss otherworldly photography, Windcliff is spectacular for both its physical beauty and the quality of information it contains.
