Ten of the best literary gardens

The Guardian's John Dugdale named ten of the best literary gardens, including:
Philippa Gregory, Earthly Joys (1998)

Centring on the great early 17th-century gardener John Tradescant, who had access to court via his patrons Cecil and Buckingham; in Gregory's sequel, Virgin Earth, his son becomes gardener to Charles I and emigrates to Virginia during the civil wars.
