Perennials in Island Beds," written by Alan Bloom and published in 1977, is practically a dinosaur among garden books. It has no color photos inside, just a middle section of 16 black-and-white photos. It's a very short book of fewer than 100 pages - and small pages at that, barely larger than a trade paperback. In 1953, he designed some experimental and ornamental demonstration island beds in his grass yard at Bressingham. These worked so well that a few years later he made more island beds in an adjacent 6-acre field, called "The Dell," for a total of 50 irregularly curving beds containing more than 5,000 plant species.

Alan Herbert Vauser Bloom MBE (19 November 1906 – 31 March 2005) was a British horticulturist and steam engine enthusiast. During his life he created over 170 new varieties of hardy perennial plants. These and Alpine plants and conifers were his specialities. He invented the garden feature of freestanding island beds, set in open lawn. He wrote some 30 books and appeared on radio and television. He was the founder of Bressingham Steam and Gardens in Norfolk, England.
