Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Explore English horticultural style in twenty-eight classic gardens in the care of Britain's National Trust. Shown in dozens of breathtaking color photos, these lush and beautiful spaces are the product of a variety of influences: a passion for plants, a mild climate suitable for a wide range of species, and the English love for the countryside. From the grandeur of Ham House to the glory of Mottisfont Abbey to the enchantment of King Henry's Hunting Lodge, each one is a masterpiece of skillful planning and displays an astonishing array of gardening ideas. The beautifully designed flowers and borders, ornamental trees and shrubs, knot gardens, topiary (including a giant topiary sundial), statues, pools, arbors, and much more will captivate and inspire any gardener.

Synopsis:

TRADITIONAL ENGLISH GARDENS explores and celebrates English style in twenty-eight gardens in the care of the National Trust. The product of many influences - a passion for plants, a mild climate suitable for a wide range of species, the English love of the countryside - the gardens shown in the book strike a balance between the formal Italianate style and the Robisonian wilder garden; the ordered man-made garden combined with the idea of the natural Garden of Eden. From the genius of Hidcote Manor to the grandeur of Ham House, from the glory of Mottisfont Abbey to the enchantment of King Henry's Hunting Lodge, these English gardens are masterpieces of skillful planting and display an astonishing array of gardening ideas.
