Whilst I have found lots of new gardens and the pictures are most enticing, I'm afraid there isn't actually very much information about each of them. There's just 2-4 pages devoted to a garden with about half of this space taken up with the pictures (50 gardens are described in a total of 160 pages). This leaves a few paragraphs to describe the garden, it's history, development etc. This simply isn't enough for the quality of gardens on offer and is less than the information conveyed in the average tourist leaflet.
I shall be researching further via each garden's website (full details in the book) before setting out to explore these gardens.
