About this book

This account of the history of English gardens is described through the eyes of visitors to gardens from medieval times to the present. It is illustrated with contemporary plans and paintings and modern photographs and enables the reader to understand why and to what purpose gardens were made. The authors demonstrate the depth of horticultural history in a single garden and the way successive fashions in gardening changed from Jacobean times to the present day.
