Noted British gardener and historian Hobhouse provides a detailed and comprehensive picture of garden style, ranging from formal gardens to small gardens. Using as her examples many famous gardens of the world, Hobhouse illustrates how one can design all types of gardens; her extensive accounts of such gardens as Great Dixter and Villandry effectively demonstrate plant combinations and design essentials.Though she discusses garden design with great enthusiasm, Hobhouse also shows common sense in stressing the relationship of the garden to its environment. Highly recommended for all horticultural and most public collections. Daniel S. Kalk, St. Alphonsus Coll. Lib., Suffield, Ct.
