Jane Brown

Jane Brown is the author of The Pursuit of Paradise: A Social History of Gardens and Gardening and Gardening and Gardens of a Golden Afternoon (the story of the partnership between Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll), both of which have become much loved classics to garden-minded readers all over the world. Her other books have included Tales of the Rose-Tree, Lutyens and the Edwardians’ and the gardening biographies of Vita Sackville-West, Lanning Roper and the American landscape gardener, Beatrix Farrand. Believing that writing, like gardening, is an ‘art of place’ she has pulled up her Hampshire/Surrey roots and transplanted herself to Cambridgeshire.
