Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Secret Gardens, readers experience the magic of discovering beautiful, intricately planned, and meticulously cultivated hidden worlds. More than 200 spectacular images showcase 13 private gardens, extraordinary examples of landscape design that are usually inaccessible to the public, and which have neverandmdash;or very rarelyandmdash;been featured in any publication. From France, Spain, Germany, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, and more, these gardens o ffer a dizzying range of horticultural and conceptual diversity. The designers reflect on the steps that went into bringing the garden to life, and the book concludes with biographies of landscape architects whose work is featured within, explaining the creative vision of some of the most respected design professionals working today.

Synopsis:

Flowers in the Worlds Most Beautiful Gardens puts the spotlight on the star of the garden—the flower. Tracing the history of flower gardens from the Middle Ages to today, the book discusses the types of flowers commonly planted, the landscape designs, the advances in technology, and how these practices have changed throughout the centuries. Each chapter also focuses on a significant type of bloom—the rose, iris, and tulip, among others.

Illustrated with more than 180 exquisite photographs by Alain Le Toquin, this book features the worlds most extraordinary flower gardens, showcasing gardens in countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, New Zealand, Russia, the United States, Thailand, and many more.
