This is totally misleading as all the gardens inside are of a completely different style .
Not only could I not find the garden from which the cover photo was taken,
I could find no mention of whose garden it is!
Noel Kingsbury lets us into the secret of what those garden designers do at home. You may be surprised to learn that not all garden designers actually have a garden, but obviously Noel has chosen those who do and moreover who do so with great skill in using plants. The designers themselves give frank thoughts on their private spaces and choose their favourite plants. There is a biography and timeline for each designer and a list of the gardens they have designed that are open to the public. This is an interesting read with a wide selection of designers with discussion on how they developed as a designer or how their garden developed. The photography is a feast for the eyes.
