This is a must-have for budding designers, professional and amateur and amateur' --Telegraph

Format: Hardcover
It is indeed a privilege and a pleasure to step into these eminent garden designers' own gardens via Barbara's latest book. And it is amazing to see what the designers do for themselves as opposed to what they do for their clients. Diverse, inspirational, and fascinating gardens are all described and shown off via beautiful photography. It is must for all gardeners, beginners and experts. Go buy it now.
