While many of Jekylls gardens and original plantings have disappeared, and only a handful of her plans are well-known, thousands survive in archives. Richard Bisgrove has selected a representative sample from this remarkable collection, and the designs—including plans for Jekylls three American gardens as well as for many of her English gardens—have been redrawn by an accomplished watercolorist and relabeled to make them more accessible to the nonspecialist. Together they provide an astonishing record of Jekylls versatility as a garden designer and of the painstaking attention to detail that she applied to every aspect of her art.
