The English private garden has always been tantalisingly elusive. How many horticultural miracles are hiding behind the hedges and lanes of England? From the petite to the vast, the rustic to the lavish, the traditional to the modern, but always the extraordinary, here, for the first time, is an awe-inspiring opportunity to visit England's best-kept horticultural secrets.
Edited by Garden Museum Trustee and horticulturist Tania Compton, this exquisitely-produced volume is packed full of breath-taking, never-seen-before photography and sumptuous detail.
Each of the thirty-four contributors to this book, including Jasper Conran and the Duchess of Westminster, bring the story behind their gardens to life with an astonishing sense of intimacy as they detail their botanical inspirations and passions behind the splendour.
This beautiful new book is a glorious celebration of the hidden horticultural jewels of England that will delight and inspire gardeners of every level.Über den Autor:
Tania developed her love of gardening after success with a packet of ipomoea seeds in Ibiza. Stints gardening at Tintinhull for Penelope Hobhouse and Barnsley House in the late 80s preceded a design course at the Chelsea Physic Garden where she met her husband the botanist, Dr. Jamie Compton. Tania spent 12 years as Gardens Editor for British House & Garden before resuming work as a designer.
She is a Trustee of the Garden Museum and spends spare hours over-planting 6 acres of wild and unruly meadow in Wiltshire.
