Description

This is the fourth volume in Timothy Mowl's ground-breaking county series on historic English gardens, now sponsored by the Leverhulme Trust. Cornwall is particularly strong on nineteenth- and twentieth-century gardens, in which the mild climate allows many exotic species to flourish. The 'Lost' Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project have made the county a particular favourite among garden-lovers. As in Dr Mowl's previous volumes there is nothing bland about either his selection of important gardens or his comments about them, which are as incisive as they are informedshow more
