E.A.('Gussie') Bowles was one of Britain's great gardeners. His Handbook of Crocus and Colchicum and the My Garden trilogy are still used by gardeners around the world. To this day his garden at Myddelton House, Enfield, continues to attract many visitors. He was also a talented artist and a warm-hearted supporter of the local community.

Bryan Hewitt - himself a gardener at Myddelton House - has made a sympathetic biography of the whole man, illustrated with some of Gussie's own paintings, and an introduction by his great-nephew, Brigadier Andrew Parker Bowles.
