About this book

Flowers in the World's Most Beautiful Gardens puts the spotlight on the star of the garden; the flower. Tracing the history of flower gardens from the Middle Ages to today, the book discusses the types of flowers commonly planted, the landscape designs, the advances in technology and how these practices have advanced throughout the centuries. Each chapter also focuses on a significant type of bloom; the rose, iris and tulip feature among others. Illustrated with more than 150 exquisite photographs by Alain Le Toquin, this book features the world's most extraordinary flower gardens, featuring gardens in Europe, Africa, Asia and North America.
