A unique tour of 30 of Britain’s most beautiful gardens, classic and modern. A great gift for gardeners on their days off or during the long winter nights – because gardening is as much about dreaming as doing. Packed with photographs, many specially commissioned, and evocative and entertaining text telling the stories of the gardens and the people who created them.The gardens featured are rich and varied, from romantic Sissinghurst and exuberant Great Dixter to dramatic creations such as Bodnant and Overbeck’s. There are intimate, historic walled gardens too, as well as plots that point to the future, such as Wildside, which works in harmony with nature. 

Vanessa Berridge is a highly respected garden writer. She launched The English Gardenmagazine in 1997, and her books include The Princess's Garden: Royal Intrigue and the Untold Story of Kew (2015), Great British Gardeners (2018) and Kiftsgate Court Gardens: Three Generations of Women Gardeners, which won the 2019 Garden Media Guild’s Garden Book of the Year.
