Quick Reference

(1529–c.1572), English author of gardening and scientific books. His first book was A Most Briefe and Pleasaunte Treatyse, Teachyng how to Dresse, Sowe, and Set a Garden (c.1558), which went through several editions and its title changed to The Proffitable Arte of Gardening in 1568. The Gardeners Labyrinth (1577), published under the pseudonym of Didymus Mountaine, appeared posthumously, the text having been completed by Henry Dethick. The book is attractively illustrated, showing garden designs and scenes of practical garden work. Hill, like many another gardening writer, was a gatherer of other people's knowledge, but he did it most engagingly.
