Overview
We Made a Garden is the account of how Margery Fish and her husband took on the daunting challenge of creating an inviting cottage garden out of the farmyard and rubbish heap -- including pots and pans, stoves and ancient corsets -- that surrounded their newly bought house in the country. Each with their own horticultural opinions and passions, they negotiated the territory of their garden, by turns separately and together, with often humorous collision. From cultivation of the smoothest lawn to clothing the garden's stone walls with clematis to the importance of evergreens, all along the way the story is tied together with Fish and her husband's aspiration to cultivate one of the most difficult things: the character of their garden.

First published in Britain in 1956, and never before available in an American edition, this book will appeal to the general reader and amateur gardener alike, because it is, at its most fundamental level, the engaging story of a garden and a marriage.
