Gardening with Colour at Coton Manor Summary

Gardening with Colour at Coton Manor by Susie Pasley-Tyler

Voted The Nations Favourite Garden in 2019 by garden visitors in conjunction with English Garden magazine and the National Gardens Scheme, featured in the 2022 Channel 5 series on Great British Gardens, and described by Country Life as a Symphony of colour where flamingos mix with flowers, the garden at Coton Manor, in Northamptonshire, is a dream and a joy and the passion of owner and hands-on gardener Susie Pasley-Tyler.

In this book, Susie Pasley-Tyler charts how her love of gardening was born at Coton and imparts what she has learned over the past thirty years of developing its many and varied sites, the discoveries that have come to her, the mistakes she has made (and how they were repaired), and above all the sheer delight to be gained from gardening.

Andrew Lawson, pre-eminent garden photographer and colour guru, says, Susie Pasley-Tylers passion for her garden is infectious. Perhaps there should be a health warning that this book will make you want to follow her example, and think again about your own garden.

Experienced and novice gardeners alike will be encouraged and enlightened by Susie Pasley-Tylers account of being at the helm of one of the finest gardens in England.

Gardening with Colour at Coton Manor Reviews

"A detailed conducted tour of the 10-acre garden, with all the wisdom modestly imparted by an enthusiastic, sympathetic and phenomenally observant garden owner. Hats off to Pimpernel Press, one of the few publishers that still take gardening seriously, for the quality of the design and colour reproduction. Altogether, this book is a gem, and one I suspect I shall plunder for ideas until it falls apart."

-- Ursula Buchan * The Field *

"Susie writes with enthusiasm in a flowing and relaxed style, and has taken glorious photographs throughout the year. Above all, what comes across is her delight in the garden, the enjoyment of working with plants, and things that make her smile."

-- Susie White * Garden Design Journal *

"Full of invaluable advice...The colour pictures are excellent and I have already taken pages of notes, forcing me to revisit my own gardens planting.

Books by long-term owners of good private gardens raise our sights. They are a genre in which English gardeners excel. Anyone with a terrace, big potsor a new or old garden, especially in the country, will find new guidance in Gardening with Colour at Coton Manor."

-- Robin Lane-Fox * Financial Times *

"[The book] is like having an experienced friend on hand to show you exactly which plants to grow, and how and where to use them."

* English Garden *

"The supporting photographs by Andrew Lawson are plentiful, as they should be, and very true to the garden, but it is the planting information that makes this a book worth buying for anyone wanting help with their own garden."

-- Tiffany Daneff * Country Life *

"[the author] charts how her passion for gardening developed, and shares her learnings and mistakes over the past 30 years."

* Gardens Illustrated *
