5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED WORK, 23 Aug. 2011
Once again the Attlee/Ramsay partnership have given us a work of stunning beauty and quality.
I particularly enjoyed reading about Powis Castle and Great Dixter
A tour of these Great Gardens is something that MUST be undertaken one day.
The book will be the catalyst that makes sure it happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars The gardens of Japan; Excellent, 3 April 2010
This review is from: The Gardens of Japan (Hardcover)
A fine addition to the garden books that Helena Attlee has written and for which Alex Ramsay has provided the photographs.
Not only is the book a considerable 'tour de force' but it gives much information on visiting Japan and seeing the gardens for oneself. Gardens that inspire, gardens that have a soothing, relaxing, influence on our too hasty way of life today.
The words are skilfully written and the photographs are truly beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful gardens of Wales, 15 Mar. 2009
This review is from: The Gardens of Wales (Hardcover)
The Gardens of Wales

After his 12thC perambulation of Wales Giraldus Cambrensis was so bold as to note that "There are no gardens in Wales". Maybe not then but 800 years later there most certainly are. Helena Attlee has captured, in her book, the true flavour of Wales from the splendour of Powis castle to the humble peace of Llowes Court. From the formality of Dyffryn Gardens to the bold and thrilling National Botanic Gardens in Carmarthenshire.

Photographs of fine quality abound thanks to the skill of Alex Ramsay.

Helena's other books concentrate on gardens in Italy and Portugal so it's a treat for us Welsh garden lovers that she has given us such a book.
