Exotic Gardens is more than just another coffee-table book; it is an experience. From small gardens to grand gardens this tour through selected islands of the Eastern Caribbean is an absolute delight.

The photography is nothing short of stunning, to which the insightful commentary is the consummate foil. For garden-lovers visiting the islands, this sumptuous volume is the perfect introduction to some of the rare and exotic plants that might be seen. To those like us, who are lucky enough to have a second home in this beautiful part of the world, it is an inspiration for what might be achieved in one's own garden.

We purchased this after a two-week cruise in the Caribbean where we visited some of the gardens and came across this book on sale at (prohibitive) West Indian prices. As we are keen gardeners who were much taken by the exotic and unfamiliar flora, we found that this book filled a number of roles. It acts as an aide memoir for some of the stunning and dramatic gardens we visited. It also points towards other gardens that we didn't visit, but would like to another time (hope springs eternal). The book is superbly produced in "coffee table" format, but is much more informative and authoritative than a coffee table book needs to be. It covers what appear to be most if not all the major visitable gardens of the caribbean, each given from some two to four pages with brief text of the highlights and illustrated with sumptuous photographs. The pictures alone prov1de lots of quiet browsing pleasure. We would recommend it to any keen gardener proposing a visit to Caribbean gardens, and, like us, as a souvenir of such a visit. Exotic Gardens of the Eastern Caribbean

Having just returned from visiting Hunte's Garden featured in this book, what a great souvenir of the beauty and diverse features found in nature and captured in fab pictures in this edition.
