an amazing compilation of the english country house gardens that most people are not even aware of that directly or indirectly influences their gardening. but for those who are more than curious about the origins of gardens in specific regions of england, this is an interesting read that gives brief but succinct commentaries on not only the historical settings but also perspectives on what aspect of gardening makes each house distinctive. a valuable asset for a gardening library.
A BEAUTIFUULY CRAFTED BOOK FROM START TO FINISH. I HAVE VISITED MANY OF THE MORE FAMOUS GARDENS REVIEWED WITH OUR LOCAL MASTER GARDENERS GROUP SEVERAL YEARS AGO. NO BODY DOES IT BETTER THAN GREAT BRITAIN. THIS WINTER WHEN THE SNOW IS BLOWING I WILL LOOK AT THOSE PICTURES ESPECIALLY THOSE ENGLISH ROSES AND THAT LOVELY SCENT WILL WAFT IT WAY OUR OF THE PAGES AND INTO MY NOSTRILS AND I WILL ONCE AGAIN BE IN THE LAND OF MY ANCESTORS.
This is a gorgeous book featuring 25 private estate gardens in England. The book begins with two famous ones, Hidcote and Sissinghurst, but the remainder were unfamiliar to me. Expansive lawns, walled gardens, stone archways, lush perennial and rose borders, they are all here, displayed in exquisite photographs. Truly a book to loose yourself in.
Great format and large photos!! Had hoped for more details of the specific plants, my fault for not reading the synopsis beforehand. Delightful insight into these grand gardens and estates, each is worthy of its own book.
