Royal Gardens of the World [9780857838018]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

While there have been several UK Royal Gardens books, none of them have taken an international approach like this one.

The book is a sumptuous exploration of 21 of the world's most celebrated royal gardens, from the delightful Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and the organic, sustainable Highgrove to the the rugged, classical Balmoral in the UK.

In mainland Europe you can journey from the formal splendour of Het Loo in the Netherlands and Versailles in France to the Baroque World Heritage Site of the Royal Palace of Caserta in Southern Italy. Further afield still lies the Taj Mahal in India and the Peterhof Palace in Russia.

Each featured garden will include the history, plantings and evolution of the garden as well as plant portraits of key plants and information about the design and layout of each.

Countries included are: England, Scotland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, India, Bali and Japan.

This inspiring global selection of royal gardens is a perfect gift for any gardening enthusiast or armchair traveller and takes the reader on a journey of architecturally significant houses and their classic gardens as well as providing planting ideas that range from modest to grand, simple to ornate.

AUTHOR: Mark Lane, with his background in architecture publishing and landscape design, takes both a practical and an aesthetic approach to gardening. He has gained recognition as a first-class landscape designer and the UK's first garden designer in a wheelchair, and is a presenter on the award-winning TV series BBC Gardener's World.
