The Faery Garden


This book traces the historical origins of the faery garden, with the help of 'eye witness' accounts from folk tales and evocative descriptions by poets and playwrights. It offers faery spells for both good and evil, based on the potent magic of individual flowers and trees; explores 'faery rings' and other mysterious natural phenomena; and celebrates the charm of the flower faeries. You can even learn how to plan and plant your own faery garden as the book presents gardening notes on how to create the kind of faery garden Titania might have enjoyed in Shakespeare's faery wood in A Midsummer Night's Dream. The captivating text is lavishly illustrated with original paintings, stage designs and other ephemera, read more
