Back in print after fifty yearsOld Herbaceous is a classic British novel of the garden, with a title character as outsized and unforgettable as P. G. Wodehouse's immortal butler, Jeeves. Born at the dusk of the Victorian era, Bert Pinnegar, an awkward orphan child with one leg a tad longer than the other, rises from inauspicious schoolboy days spent picking wildflowers and dodging angry farmers to become the legendary head gardener "Old Herbaceous," the most esteemed flower-show judge in the county and a famed horticultural wizard capable of producing dazzling April strawberries from the greenhouse and the exact morning glories his Lady spies on the French Riviera, "so blue, so blue it positively hurts." Sprinkled with nuggets of gardening wisdom, Old Herbaceous is a witty comic portrait of the most archetypal-and crotchety-head gardener ever to plant a row of bulbs at a British country house.This Modern Library edition is published with a new Introduction byPenelope Hobhouse, a renowned garden designer and lecturer and the author of numerous gardening books.

    so while you can build as many websites as you wish with the free plans, one thing that's missing is that you won't be able to connect your own custom domain name to those sites until you upgrade to a paying plan. So if you were to use the free tools, you will have to use their subdomain names which is branded as, for example, Wix or Weebly. There will also be advertisements on your site, which is fair since the site is free.
