Notes

Description
This garden-lover's guide to England is both a valuable travel resource and inspiring coffee-table book for those who adore exploring and strolling through charming garden destinations and horticulturally inspired hideaways. An excellent book for those who also enjoy an engaging narrative grafted with comprehensive, technical detail, including a collection of the little-known and extraordinary stories surrounding famed Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Monk's House, and Heligan. Is organised thematically into 'gardens' and 'places to dine, drink and stay' (surrounded by the best botanical spaces), with sections broken down by season, popular flower types, and region, to both cater to a wider range of experiences and for user-friendly itinerary planning. Filled with beautiful photographs throughout, showcases many of England's best public and private gardens, historic, classic and iconic gardens, secret and little-known gardens, writers' gardens, kitchen gardens, walled gardens, rose gardens, grand estates, restored or contemporary spaces, floral shows, beautifully landscaped expanses, and much more. Lists important information about how to choose the best time of year to visit; the most beautiful garden destinations to visit with detailed itineraries; where best to see springflowers, tulips, wisteria, rhododendrons, roses, dahlias, among many others- Includes a valuable index of wonderful places and activities to be inspired by, from courses and workshops on topiary and garden embroidery to museums and galleries that offer botanical exhibitions, along with specialist nurseries, gardens stores and other garden resources, entries on floral arrangements, memorable garden tours, and DIY garden trails for those who prefer an independent experience.
