Walled gardens are enjoying a huge revival: derelict ones are being reclaimed, new ones are being built and garden designers are creating heavenly havens surrounded by architect-designed walls. What a contrast all this is to the 1980s, when the walled garden seemed to be an endangered species.
This illustrated book by gardens expert Leslie Geddes-Brown celebrates walled gardens in all their diversity worldwide, from those of Ancient Greece and Rome and medieval depictions of the hortus conclusus to the most avant-garde walled gardens by today's leading designers, including Christopher Bradley-Hole and Piet Oudolf. From formal walled gardens to walled vegetable gardens, individual features describe and illustrate specific walled gardens of every type.
With a wealth of photographs, an informative text, an international directory of plants for walled gardens, and the contact details of all the featured contemporary designers and gardens open to the public, this beautiful and valuable book will appeal to garden lovers everywhere.
