From the Tudor knot gardens through the formal realities of Jacobean and Georgian landscaping and on to the Gothic fantasies of wealthy Victorian landowners, Miles Hadfield brings the British gardens of the past alive, tracing their development, social importance and, above all, the combination of foreign influences and native climate that shaped their individuality. Drawing on contemporary works, and offering practical hints on everything from arboriculture to kitchen gardening, this edition also contains an appendix by Geoffrey and Susan Jellicoe dealing with developments over the last 40 years.
