The ultimate celebration of England's most gorgeous gardens, showcasing their enduring appeal from historic masterpieces to individual creations of today

The English Gardener's Garden spans seven centuries to spotlight over 60 of England's finest gardens. Adapted from Phaidon's bestselling The Gardener's Garden, updated, and organized geographically by country, the selection ranges from formal Renaissance gardens, herbaceous Arts and Crafts gardens of the 20th century, to artistic creations and healing gardens by contemporary designers.

Each entry is illustrated with sumptuous photographs and features a concise text detailing the garden's historical and stylistic importance and that of its designer, patron, or maker, creating a beautiful and easy-to-use introduction for garden designers and enthusiasts alike.

A valuable resource for those seeking inspiration on garden design and planting - and the ideal gift for garden-lovers - this book showcases the enduring appeal of the English garden and features gardens by historic figures and leading contemporary designers - Gertrude Jekyll, Sarah Price, William Robinson, and Tom Stuart-Smith, to name a few. Featuring historic national treasures such as Sissinghurst Castle Garden and Capability Brown's Blenheim Palace, alongside contemporary examples including Dan Pearson's Lowther Castle and Derek Jarman's Prospect Cottage, The English Gardener's Garden is an accessible overview of over 60 iconic and influential English gardens from the sixteenth century to the present day, including all types of garden, including formal parterres, cottage gardens, botanical, and urban gardens.
