9780711232228: The Irish Garden

Visitors to Ireland are often surprised at the 'palm trees' that make so many gardens look as if they belong in a holiday postcard. How can such exotics survive on an island that is as far north as the prairies of Canada and the pine forests of Siberia? The answer lies in the tail of the Gulf Stream - the North Atlantic Drift - which wraps around this green land on the western edge of Europe.
Its warm and watery embrace bestows the renowned 'soft' climate that allows those palm trees (in fact, New Zealand cordylines) to make their homes here - along with tree ferns from Australia and bananas from Japan. Plants from colder regions, including rhododendrons, primulas and all manner of alpines, are equally happy. So, with a range of plants that runs from the subtropical to the subarctic, and a landscape that varies from gently pastoral to savagely rugged, the aptly named Emerald Isle has some of the most romantic and interesting gardens in the world.
The Irish Garden visits over forty of Ireland's most beautiful gardens, ranging from the grand old demesnes of the Anglo-Irish ascendancy to the intensely personal creations of passionate plantsmen and garden makers. The result of a lifetime visiting, considering and writing about gardens in Ireland, and several years of dedicated photography, this is a truly comprehensive exploration of a fascinating subject.

‘a sumptuous tome [...]lavishly illustrated with stunning photographs by Jonathan Hession’



“This is a truly inspirational book, one that will excite & inspire and make you start planning a glorious garden tour of the lush green isle.”



"worth its weight in gold"



"a synchrony of text and images that should be the blueprint for future books of this kind ..."

"it will surely persuade many readers to visit, or re-visit, that remarkable island's remarkable repertorie of gardens"

"a stunning record of the best the island has to offer, in both the Republic and Northern Ireland."

"this big weighty tome made me utterly homesick for my native land, and reminded me what makes Irish gardens and landscapes so unique. ?The light, the atmosphere and the character of these places are captured magnificently in Jonathan Hession's photographs ... Jane Powers ...accompanies the fine photography with considered, informed writing ... "

"outstanding in its scope and achievement ... a book not to be missed"

"an absorbing well-written thing of beauty ...unbelievably romantic and magical photographs."

"The first extensive book on Irish gardens in a long time, this big weighty tome made me feel utterly homesick for my native land, and reminded me what makes Irish gardens and landscapes so unique."

"Ireland's finest gardens are showcased in stuning new book . . . a must-have for all who are interested in the evolution of the Irish garden."

"shows exactly why it is that we should take such an immense, enduring and protective pride in the remarkable gardens that are a unique but fragile part of our heritage"

"a horticulturist's dream"

"This is a truly inspirational book, one that will excite & inspire and make you start planning a glorious garden tour of the lush green isle."

"I was scarcely 20 pages into this magnificent book before I said to myself `I've got to go back to Ireland.? I've got to go back now . a huge, heavy, sumptuous book beautifully designed and rightly extravagant with the photographs."

"the writing is fresh, informative and entertaining: the photographs are magnificent . likely to become a standard reference, which will tell you new things about gardens you know and send you off to visit those you don't."

'A tour de force.'

' Its images are hard to resist.'

'The photographs often stopped me in my tracks, sometimes with an involuntary gasp and a mental, 'Oh I must go there'... This pair of perfectionists have produced a remarkable book.'

"This book is a thorough treat. And one that delights the biggest muscle of all, the brain."

"worth its weight in gold"

`a sumptuous tome [...]lavishly illustrated with stunning photographs by Jonathan Hession'
