About this book

Passion, Plants and Patronage takes readers on a luscious voyage through three centuries of Bute family commissioned gardens. Art, architecture and landscape have come together under the generous patronage of the Butes and, today, their commissions rank amongst the jewels of British national heritage.

From the enlightenment view of gardens as repositories of botanic knowledge, to the current tradition of contemporary art patronage, Passion, Plants and Patronage celebrates the Bute family's commitment to the pursuit of culture and nature in their gardens through the generations.

From Dumfries House, Falkland, Luton, Cardiff, Highcliffe and Kew Gardens through to St John's Lodge in London's Regent's Park, a wealth of visual documentation eloquently complements their essays, affording a truly privileged view into the beautiful gardens of the Bute family from the eighteenth century to today.
