Gardens of the National Trust

Stephen Lacey

Description

The National Trust has the finest collection of gardens in the United Kingdom. Stephen Lacey paints a vivid historical and horticultural picture of the individual gardens, placing them firmly within the context of gardening history in Britain.

All the major periods and styles of garden design are represented, ranging from the formality of early gardens to the famous plantsmen's gardens of the last century. Much has happened in the gardens of the National Trust since the last revision of this book, and this edition has been revised to embrace recent restorations and to introduce recently acquired properties.

The book serves as a practical guide as well as a source of inspiration. Each entry gives details of soil type and climate and an appendix includes many other gardens to visit. Glorious colour photographs illustrate the entries, complementing the text to bring the gardens to life.
