The archive comprises letters from Gertrude Jekyll and, after her death, from her nephew, Francis Jekyll, to Amy Barnes Brand relating to the development of the latter's garden at Woodhouse Copse, Holmbury St Mary, Surrey, and two associated archives comprising a single letter from Jekyll to Mrs Furze at Camberley, and a postcard to Mrs Maynard Proud at Darlington. The catalogue includes 'ghost records' of Jekyll's scrap book of drawings and album of campanulas, which are held in the Lindley Library art collection.
