Description

Step inside the mind of the Victorian gardener with this beautifully illustrated volume, unearthing the history and development of the styles, plants, tools and features that define the gardens of the Victorian era. Inspired by technical innovation and the introduction of exotic plants from far away lands, Victorian gardens were far from harmonious with the landscape, incorporating a mix of styles that would create an imposing or peculiar view. Here you will see the Victorian garden in all its glory, from the eclectic planting, Swiss cottages and Chinese temples prominent in the gardens of the rich and famous such as Alton Towers and Biddulph Grange, to the less unusual but still noticeable features, such as ponds and bridges, of the common domestic garden.show more
