Über das Leben, das Gärtnern und die Freundschaft In diesem faszinierenden Briefwechsel tauschen sich die beiden legendären englischen Gärtner Beth Chatto und Christopher Lloyd, langjährige Freunde und enthusiastische Pflanzenliebhaber, über ihre so unterschiedlichen Gärten, aber auch über ihre Erfahrungen, Erfolge und Enttäuschungen aus; sie berichten von Erlebnissen, gemeinsamen Freunden, kulinarischen Genüssen und den Freuden und Leiden des Alltags. Sehr persönlich und liebenswert diskutieren sie ihre Ansichten und Einsichten über das Leben, die Musik, die Jahreszeiten und die Natur. Ihre Lebenswege und Ausgangsbedingungen sind sehr unterschiedlich: auf der einen Seite Beth Chatto, die als Autodidaktin ihre heute berühmten Beth Chatto Gardens in East Anglia über mehr als 40 Jahre dem kargen Boden abgetrotzt hat und damit zeigt, was unter schwierigsten Bedingungen möglich ist; auf der anderen Seite Christopher Llyod, der das historische Anwesen Great Dixter in Sussex mit seinen zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts von Sir Edwin Lutyens angelegten Gärten von seinen Eltern übernommen und sehr kreativ weiterentwickelt hat. Beide haben mehrere Bücher über ihre Gärten veröffentlicht und wurden weltweit mit zahlreichen Preisen und Anerkennungen ausgezeichnet. • Faszinierender Briefwechsel zweier legendärer Gärtner • Persönlich und berührend • Wunderbare Lektüre für alle Gartenfreunde
