Portraits of People, Plants and Places. A photographic evocation of the British garden past, present and future published to coincide with a major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London, in June 2003.

Whether as designers or writers, horticulturists or conservationists, explorers or scholars, all have enriched and furthered the tradition of gardening.
