She was educated at North Foreland Lodge and attended Girton College, Cambridge, where she graduated with a BA in economics in 1951. She taught herself gardening by examples of the Tuscan villa gardens she saw on a walking tour; she went on to become a well-known garden writer, designer, lecturer, and television presenter, publishing many books on the subject.

These include Colour in Your Garden, Plants in Garden History, Penelope Hobhouse on Gardening, Penelope Hobhouse's Garden Designs, and Penelope Hobhouse's Natural Planting.
In 1996. she hosted a series for Home & Garden TV in the USA.
She has designed gardens in England, Scotland, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and the USA.

She is an associate editor of Gardens Illustrated magazine, and has taught at the University of Essex. In 1952, she married Paul Rodbard Hobhouse; they couple had three children before the marriage was dissolved in 1983. She met her second husband, John Melville Malins, at a Garden History Society meeting.

Hobhouse is sui generis. Her jacket photo is dreadful but in person she's alive and strangely brilliant. This book is about color and rivals any on my shelves.
Found some papers in the back that do not belong. From whence came they.
Also, this is a gift from the Mainguys. I gave them one in French - which was sold to me by mistake at conference San Fransisco. They returned the favor w this.

I read this book as a narrative of more than the history of gardens, but more interestingly a history of the human relationship with some of the aspects of the botanical world that we most treasure. In this respects its an absolute goldmine, combining beautiful imagery with historical background.

A great way to gaze at gardens...almost like being there.
