Throughout her long and storied life, Rachel ‘Bunny’ Mellon’s greatest passion was garden design. Although she had no formal training, she amassed a vast knowledge of horticulture and maintained homes all across the united states, while also doing landscaping for personal friends such as John and Jackie Kennedy.

The Gardens of Bunny Mellon is lavishly illustrated with her own garden plans, sketches and watercolours, as well as with archival photographs and Roger Foley’s specially commissioned photographs of the gardens, farm and horticultural library at Oak Spring, the Mellon estate in Virginia. Author Linda Jane Holden’s text is based on extensive interviews with Mrs Mellon before her death in 2014 at age 103, as well as with the gardeners at the Mellon properties and at the White House. It is published with the cooperation and endorsement of the Oak Spring Garden Foundation, the mission of which is to perpetuate and share Bunny Mellon’s residence, garden and extensive library.
