The illustrations in the book are also by Susan and are completely fitting and very beautiful. Probably my favourite one is below, who cannot love something called a 'potato dangler'? They work well with the type of paper used too. I almost cannot explain that observation, but there is something about the simplicity of the illustrations and their style that would look out of place on bleached white shiny paper.
The final chapter is on the gardeners themselves. It looks at the duties of the Head Gardener, the foremen and apprentices and the (limited) role of women in the garden.
