Description

Visit some of the best English gardens without moving from your armchair with this best-selling classic which features over 350 colour photographs. Gardening writer Ursula Buchan has combined forces with garden photographer Andrew Lawson to explore the English garden and capture its richness and diversity, explaining the historical trends and the work of garden makers of the past that have shaped the English gardens we see today. Exploring many garden styles including formality, the landscape tradition, the Arts and Crafts style, the cottage garden and recent phenomena such as New Naturalism, the book discusses themes such as colour, water, ornament and foreign influences, as well as such defining characteristics as the very English urge to grow flowers and the nation's love of roses.
