Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0394531345, Hardcover)

Since its first publication in 1962, "The Education of a Gardener" has become a classic and a collector's item. It is chiefly concerned with the designing of gardens in relation to their site, to the choice and associations of plant material, as well as its suitability for the plan of the garden, and the natural factors of soil and climate. Russell Page's main concern has always been the development of garden forms, colours and textures to make a work of art. Russell Page, the most eminent European garden designer, works in a 4000-year-old tradition which stemmed from High Asia and reached a peak in the Islamic Middle East and Southern Mediterranean before finding its last great expression in Renaissance Europe.
