Anne Scott-James is the author of a string of successful books including the gardening classics Down to Earth, Sissinghurst and Gardening Letters to My Daughter.
"'Down to Earth is a charming book for gardeners of taste, written with sensitivity and style. The author draws on a number of outstanding gardens and on her own experience as an enthusiastic amateur gardener. The wit and nostalgia of her husband's drawings admirably suit the text.' Sunday Times; 'This very readable book by a devoted amateur gardener is brimful of ideas, not only ideas that the author has tried out in her own garden, but many others that she has noted on her garden travels. It is a book that you can pick up at any time and always find something interesting within its pages.' The Irish Times"
