About this book

With over a million visitors a year, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, is one of the world's best-loved gardens. As well as having a fascinating history and holding an unchallenged position as the world's leading botanical research institute, it is a paradise for plant-lovers, offering a wealth of inspiration for every gardener. Joanna Jackson shows in her superb photographs every aspect of life through the year in Kew Gardens, while her informative text describes the gardens' history and work. Words and pictures combine to make a magical record of a place that is a mecca for plant-lovers, and was recently designated a Unesco World Heritage Site.

A beayutifully illustrated guide to the magnificent gardens in Surrey. Lady Kew's stunning blend of natural beauty, classical architecture and manicured planting has been joyously captured by the camera of Joanna Jackson, season to season. If you haven't been to Kew, this book will surely spur you to go; if you've been before, it will make you go again. Outdoor Photography
