Gentlemen Peasants: a Gardener's ABC

By Hugh Popham

London: Andre Deutsch, 1968 Binding is green cloth with yellow lettering to the front cover and spine; 94 pages. Dj has some mild edgewear, mainly to the top of the spine, but has no tears or creases. Most men who address people on the subject of gardening do so with formidable authority and don't hesitate for an instant in distinguishing between superphosphate and supersulphate, or even between scab and thrips. Hugh Popham is different. He will never be heard on Gardener's Question Time except, possibly, as the mumbler in the back row who is having trouble with his tropaeolum. It is therefore for those in trouble with their tropaeolum that he writes: not to tell them how to overcome it (a dozen lesser authorities will give them that information) but to cheer and comfort them. Here, they will feel at once, is a kindred spirit who has learnt and is prepared to share a secret: that of putting all the little problems they know so well into the perspective of that larger, all-embracing problem known as Gardening, simply by being able to laugh.
