In Your Garden Again is Miss Sackville-West's second gardening book. The first, In Your Garden won immediate and lasting affection and admiration. 'A book no garden lover can afford to miss' was a cliche which understandably found its way into most of the reviews. It surprised the author, but no one else, by the popularity it gained. 'I set out modestly,' writes Miss Sackville-West, 'with the idea of giving some suggestions to the amateur gardener about some unusual plants he might grow -- something his neighbours might not have or might not know about. With very few exceptions, I have written only of plants I know from personal experience. I have tried to cater for all tastes, for the small garden and the not so small, bearing in mind that costs and facilities are no longer what they used to be.' Naturally she has her own preferences and prejudices, and no hesitation in saying so; with the result that her book possesses an individual flavour, as well as being written with the directness and precision of a practical gardener.
