This is an interesting portrait of Vita as gardener I highly reccommend her gardening writing I feel like so many biographers of Vita allow her bisexuality and most particularly her relationship with Virginia Woolf to eclipse all her other accomplishments This biography is a welcome change from all that not to mention the fact that there are so few biographies of gardeners in general I feel like I learned a lot about Vita about her garden at Sissinghurst and about gardening in general from this book Huh I like this idea rescuing a story threatened with complete domination by another story Vita Sackville West is perhaps known for her garden then either her novels or her infamous love life and social gatherings involving the Bloombury set Ms Sakville West was a true artist when it came to planning and planting the masterpiece of Sissinghurst Brown does an admirable job of describing a life long artistic passion
