Garden People, The Photographs of Valerie Finnis


A charming photographic record of the eccentric mid-20th century English gardening scene by one of the best-known figures in postwar British horticulture.

Together with her husband, Sir David Scott, she travelled around Great Britain and beyond, meeting the great and famous in gardening - Vita Sackville-West at Sissinghurst, Lady Birley at Charleston Manor,  as well as lesser-known gardeners, nurserymen, plant enthusiasts, designers and artists. All are seen at home, nattily clad in their gardens, weeding, inspecting, watering and standing proudly by their plants.
