This is the story of how British hedgerows contribute to our national identity and our wildlife. Over the centuries we have proved ourselves to be a nation of hedge-growers, marking our boundaries with hedges or trimming our topiaries into fantastical shapes. From formal garden features to emphatically rustic barriers, the author explores our hedges in all their diversity.

Full of facts and tales, this is a charming portrait of our national character through our most eccentric national characteristics.
