The English Garden, Hardback

The English Garden Hardback



Gardening writer Ursula Buchan has combined forces with garden photographer Andrew Lawson to explore the English garden and capture its richness and diversity.

Focusing on gardens that are open to visitors, she explains the historical trends and the work of garden makers of the past that have shaped the English gardens we see today.

With a wealth of outstanding examples, illustrated with 350 photographs, she describes many garden styles - formality, the landscape tradition, the Arts and Crafts style, the cottage garden and recent phenomena such as New Naturalism.

Colour, water, ornament and foreign influences are among the themes she considers, as well as such defining characteristics as the very English urge to grow flowers and the nation's love of roses.
