"Prior to this publication, 'An Irish Flower Garden Replanted' was out of print for almost a decade. Dr. Nelson relates that ""in the intervening years many things have happened both in my own life and in the interwoven lives of my friends and colleagues, and gardens and their plants. I have also learnt more about the garden plants that we cultivate in Ireland. A new edition was required, and I have taken the opportunity to augment the original text. I have added a chapter on roses, based on my address to the ninth World Rose Convention held in Belfast during 1991, and I have drawn into this book, in edited form, a scattering of essays that were published elsewhere and the unpublished scripts for talks which I gave on Sunday Miscellany broadcast by Radio Telefís ireann. I have also made corrections, and altered a few names to bring them up-to-date. In a few instances, the previously published history has been revised in the light of my more recent research"".
The book is lavishly illustrated by Wendy Walsh, with 21 coloured plates (including 10 new watercolours for this edition), and 18 figures in Chinese inks."
