Review:

Centring on what is known as the "Garden of England", the county of Kent, author Robin Whiteman and renowned photographer Rob Talbot travel the country lanes in search of what the term actually means. Also encompassing the counties of Surrey and Sussex, they discover the wonders of the natural countryside, the Downs, forests and coastlines that make up these areas, the first part of the country to be seen by many visitors coming across the Channel by ferry or Eurotunnel. Revealing hidden gems of manicured gardens such as Wakehurst, Sissinghurst and Cowdray they also reveal lesser-known, private gardens such as Dixter, West Dean and the Royal Horticultural Societys' showpiece at Wisley. Photographed alongside are the country villages and towns, attractive churches, houses and cottages all captured in beautiful colour by Rob Talbot, giving the reader a clear picture of why and what the "Garden of England" really is. Part of the "Country Series", this is a collectable book for all those interested in our natural heritage. - Lucy Watson An acclaimed cast collaborate on this lavishly illustrated book: Arabella Lennox-Boyd, acclaimed garden designer, Clay Perry, renowned photographer and Graham Stuart Thomas, arguably the greatest gardener of the 20th century and responsible for the running and design of many of the gardens displayed here. Famous for our gardens throughout the world and emulated across the globe, the history of horticultural pleasure gardens stems back to the Medieval Age and before. This celebration of 28 National Trust gardens reflects this historical heritage. From the billowing herbaceous borders of Blickling Hall and Upton Park to the toparied formality of Hidcote and Knightshayes, all are meticulously maintained. Open to the public they have to be in prime condition and whilst neat grass and formal beds display this to perfection, herbaceous borders are allowed a short leash to display their lushness and fullness to best advantage. This guide showcases all that is best in British gardening and looking at the luscious photographs, it is hardly surprising we make other nations jealous of our horticultural aptitude. - Lucy Watson
