From Flora, Roman goddess of plants, to today's gardeners at Kew, women have always gardened. Women gardeners have grown vegetables for their kitchens and herbs for their medicine cupboards. They have been footnotes in the horticultural annals for specimens collected abroad. They taught young women about gardening twenty-five years before women's horticultural schools officially existed. And their influence on the style of our gardens, frequently unacknowledged, survives to the present day. From these triumphs to the battles fought against male-dominated institutions, from the horticultural pioneers to the bringers of change in society's attitudes, this book is a celebration of the best of the species -- gardening women.

Known around the world for her eponymous brand of fragrances and her latest venture, Jo Loves, Jo Malone tells the “inspiring, courageous, and brutally honest” (Nylon) story of her rise from humble beginnings to beloved business success. Jo Malone began her international fragrance and scented candle business in 1983 in her kitchen, where she gave facials and made bath oils as thank-you gifts for her clients. She opened her first store in London in 1994 and, in 1999, she sold the Jo Malone London brand to Estée Lauder Companies for millions of dollars. Recently, she launched a new brand, Jo Loves, igniting the excitement of fashion and beauty websites all over the world. Raised in government-subsidized housing in Kent in the early 1960s, Jo Malone dropped out of school as a teenager to care for her sick mother. Jo had not been successful in school because of her severe dyslexia, but she had the ability to see and feel everything in scent. Her at-home beauty business and handmade products became popular, and word of her talent spread until an international brand was born. After the sale of her company and the birth of her son, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. Thus began the second chapter of her life, and in her “inspiring story of human spirit and chutzpah” (Booklist, starred review), Jo tells her full amazing and inspiring personal story. This memoir is “a testament to the power of ambition and the joy of following your dreams” (People).

The Compton Press was, like much of the 1960s, a happening. It began, not with a grand design, but with a passion for letterpress printing. This passion was very infectious, and people were drawn to the mix of compositors, machine-minders, proof readers, editors, and typographers initially based in a converted cowshed and coach house in Compton Chamberlayne, Wiltshire. We stubbornly clung onto our liking for letterpress, and this led to our eventual demise, but for the 12 years that we lasted we printed over 500 editions of books, published over 100, and produced many journals, and uncountable items of jobbing printing.
