Summary
"In this book which accompanies the 10-part BBC television series Monty Don describes his incredible journey searching for the world's 80 most inspirational gardens." "Each garden is placed in context, horticultural preconceptions are abandoned and Monty is constantly surprised by the unexpected locations where gardens thrive. He observes how Roman and Islamic strands of civilisation express themselves in gardens today, the seamless merging of a garden and its surrounding landscape in Chile, and analyses the connections between nature, harmony and austerity in the gardens of China and Japan."--BOOK JACKET
