Product Description

Review

Writer Stephen Anderton likes to walk into a garden and feel inspired by daring designs, quirkiness and innovation. --David Powell - Daily Post

Anderton's wonderful guide is enough to make me get on the internet and start looking for B&Bs. His enthusiasm comes across in his new book which could grace any coffee table in style. --Emma Townshend - The Independent

A superb production with an opinionated and provocative text. --Stephen Lacey - The Telegraph

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By B. Rosewell on 15 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is the rare combination of great photographs and interesting text. When Anderton describes a garden as having earnest theatricality it beings the garden and its owners to life.
It is not a book about p;ants or how to make a garden. It is however about what a garden is for and how they are inspired and inspiring. The photographs tell a story and the words then also challenge the gardens to go on growing too.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By N. Smurthwaite on 25 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
Came across this delightful book, being initially drawn in by the splendour of the photographs (by photographer Charles Hawes). However, the text (from Stephen Anderton) then adds wonderfully to the images, and generates a real flavour of each of the gardens, giving a sense of their wonder, and individuality. Whilst focussing on Welsh Gardens, this stands as a wonderful book in its own right. A delightful read for anyone interested in visiting, or just reading about gardens.

Format: Paperback
This book with excellent photographs and robust text fills an important gap about Wales and her gardens. Being a Welshman exiled in South Africa this was truly delightful discovery.
