Review:

Helena Atlee's writing bears the stamp of experience and knowledge. Each of her books is the result of serious research and repeated visits, but she wears her learning lightly, charming her reader with evocative and engaging descriptions of style, setting, history and creator - even the effects of changing light and weather are covered... The photos - shot by Attlee's partner, award-winning photographer Alex Ramsay - are gorgeous too, making this book the 'complete package':a first-class intorduction to Britain's great gardens.



Little nuggets capture the spirit of the gardens and entice you to visit.
