9780711235762: British Gardens in Time: The Greatest Gardens and the People Who Shaped Them

As Seen on the BBC. British Gardens in Time takes four iconic gardens, each a product of its age, and provides a fascinating window into the creators and events that shaped them. The stories of their creation include obsession, escape, social ambition, political intrigue, heartbreak, bankruptcy and disaster. In unravelling these remarkable stories we reach back over the centuries to see these great gardens through fresh eyes. From the magnificent landscape garden at Stowe created by Bridgeman, Kent and Lancelot 'Capability' Brown; the Victorian masterpiece of Biddulph Grange; the romantic Arts & Crafts retreat at Nymans; and Christopher Lloyd's plantsman's paradise at Great Dixter, you will hear of adventure, innovation and visionary individuals who changed the way we create our gardens and the plants we grow. Author Katie Campbell weaves the stories of these four exemplary gardens into a history of British gardening from the earliest cultivated spaces to the present day, exploring trends, influences and pioneers. Fascinating historic detail and atmospheric storytelling make this a compelling read. British Gardens in Time includes a foreword by CHRIS BEARDSHAW, specially commissioned photography by NATHAN HARRISON, and extensive archive illustrations. Author KATIE CAMPBELL lectures widely, leads garden tours and writes on the social history of gardening. Her other books published by Frances Lincoln are Icons of Twentieth-Century Landscape Design and Paradise of Exiles.

Recensione:

"a well-researched and beautifully illustrated social history of British gardening from the 18th to the 21st century.  If the BBC4 series left you wanting to know more, this elegant garden history book enables you to go forward and enter into dialogues with many of the gardens you visit."

( The Garden)

"Roy Strong has already published one substantial book about his garden in Herefordshire.  Can another be justified?  The answer is a resounding 'yes' ... this unusual book chronicles - through the text and Clive Boursnell's attentive photography - the remaking, across a decade, of this formal garden of enclosures and episodes."

( House & Garden)

"Katie Campbell's book makes excellent and stimulating reading, putting 300 years of horticultural endeavour into precise context alongside gardens (and people) of similar vintage."

( Gardens Illustrated)

'If I had a coffee table, this would be the book I would like on it.'

( Best of British)

'uncovers the passions and people behind four iconic gardens ... a fascinating book.'

( The Simple Things)

'a ready inspiration for those who want to know more than a practical planting manual can reveal.  This book is the perfect antidote to digging the beds.'

( The Field)

KATIE CAMPBELL was a journalist and fiction writer before turning to garden history. She lectures widely, has taught on postgraduate and undergraduate courses at Birkbeck, Bristol and Buckingham Universities; she also writes for various publications and leads garden tours.

Earlier garden books include Icons of Twentieth Century Landscape Design, and Policies and Pleasances, A Guide to Scotland’s Gardens.

CHRIS BEARDSHAW is an award winning garden designer, television presenter and author. He trained in horticulture and landscape design and after lecturing widely, now focuses on fronting and co-hosting tv programmes such as The Flying Gardener, Hidden Gardens, Gardeners World, Great Garden Detectives, and the most recent series British Gardens in Time. He also runs his own practice, splitting his time between designing, lecturing, broadcasting, writing, campaigning and working with charities such as The Woodland Trust, The Salvation Army, The Environment Agency and The National Lottery.

Commissioned photography by NATHAN HARRISON with extensive archive from many historical sources. Nathan is an experienced wildlife photographer and camera-man.
