About this book

Language: Trilingual in English, French, and German

From stylized Zen gardens in Provence to cactus displays on the Cote d'Azur, from classical palace gardens to quaint domestic beds, travel round the most beautiful gardens in France, home to some of the most elegant, charming, and inspiring horticulture in the world. The typical plants of each climatic region are represented-delphiniums, roses and irises in the North, and Californian poppies, santolinas, and lavender in the Midi. With pictures through every season, celebrate the particular beauty of spring, summer, fall, and winter, and discover plenty of inspiring ideas for your own garden. The collection celebrates both such famous displays as Villandry, Versailles, and the gardens of Claude Monet, as well as lesser known gems of equal, if smaller-scale, charm.

A spectacular source book for all garden and nature lovers, this is also a special travel guide for any visitors to France, with a number of the chosen gardens open to the public.
