Description
The author of The English Garden Abroad and The House & Gardens Book of Country Gardens, as well as editor of the Royal Horticultural Society's Garden Finder, Charles Quest-Ritson offers this wide-ranging illustrated survey of outstanding public and private gardens from Ireland to Georgia, from Russia to Sicily. It embraces the vast sweep of Europe's horticultural and garden design heritage, including ancient Roman remnants in Italy, Moorish gardens in Spain, tiled gardens in Portugal, and baroque masterpieces and English-style landscape gardens throughout the continent. Here too are the giardini segreti of renaissance Italy, English flower gardens and woodland gardens, the botanic gardens of Germany and Scandinavia, arboreta of northern Europe, high-level alpine gardens in Switzerland, and contemporary gardens in France and the Low Countries.

"The Gardens of Europe is a thoroughly practical guide book and offers opportunities to visit relatively unsung gardens in relatively obscure gardening territories without ignoring the grander sweeps of history and the iconic gardens that set the trends of their day. It has everything to recommend it."—Penelope Hobhouse
