- The English private garden has always been tantalisingly elusive. How many horticultural miracles are hiding behind the hedges and lanes of England? From the petite to the vast, the rustic to the lavish, the traditional to the modern, but always the extraordinary, here, for the first time, is an awe-inspiring opportunity to visit England's best-kept horticultural secrets. Edited by Garden Museum Trustee and horticulturist Tania Compton, this exquisitely-produced volume is packed full of breath-taking photography and sumptuous detail. Each of the thirty-four contributors to this book, including the Bannermans' romantic Cornish castle to the windswept shores of Howick in Northumberland via Jasper Conran in Dorset, bring the story behind their gardens to life with an astonishing sense of intimacy as they detail their botanical inspirations and passions behind the splendour. This beautiful new book is a glorious celebration of the hidden horticultural jewels of England that will delight and inspire gardeners of every level.
