About this title

Synopsis:

Join a landscape architect and garden designer on a trip through time to study the complex and exciting story of the English art of gardening. See how garden styles, from medieval times through the present, have reflected political, economic, social, and cultural life and values. Examine the gardens of cottages and mansions and those in the country and the city. Investigate the influence of technological advances such as the greenhouse, the lawn mower, and plant hybridization. Glorious full-color photographs of exquisite gardens, illuminated manuscript pages, beautiful paintings and other works of art illustrate this fascinating exploration that captures the overwhelming love of flowering plants that has always inspired for English gardeners.

About the Author:

This book grew out of Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall's love and understanding of period gardens and her work as a specialist in their restoration and adaptation. Recent restoration projects include an 18th century town garden in the Circus in Bath, the famous rose garden at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire and an early 19th century garden at River Cottage, Clivden, Berkshire.
