Hugh Johnson in the Garden contains a selection of the much-loved writings of Hugh Johnson for the Royal Horticultural Society magazine, The Garden.  Perhaps best known for his wine writing, Hugh Johnson's passion for gardening shines through in this gently compelling diary written about his renowned garden.

Trad's diary, a column of garden jottings, first appeared in the RHS magazine, The Garden, in June 1975.  Hugh Johnson was its author (in addition to being the Editorial Director of the magazine) and it became a monthly fixture for the RHS's committed gardeners.  Hugh's writings are filled with an eclectic mixture of topical, whimsical and humorous anecdotes and are organized to follow a gardener to Lord Cecil at Hatfield House and to King James I, one of the first men to introduce plants from foreign countries to his garden, Hugh's writings appeared in The Garden from 1975-2006, in Gardens Illustrated in 2007, and in 2008 still appear monthly through his own website.
