There is nothing lovelier than England in June, when it's in full blossom, when the sun is sinking down behind the hedgerows and the Queen Elizabeth rose, with its palest of pale pink petals, is unfolding into glorious summer bloom. Nothing lifts the spirit more than a glorious meander through an English garden in full floraison. The sweetly scented gardens and gentle landscapes of this great country have long drawn horticulture fans and Anglophiles searching for its natural idylls, made so redolent in literature, film, photography, poetry and song. Every summer, people from all over the world travel to England to stay at charming guest houses with bucolic gardens, drink at country pubs with flower-decked beer gardens, wander from gate to gate on garden tours, shop at stores for irresistible garden tools and seeds, and dine at cafés and restaurants with floral-themed interiors. Now, this beautiful new book by bestselling author Janelle McCulloch - part guidebook and part armchair delight for garden lovers - shows you where to find these wonderful garden destinations, from the celebrated and famous to the secret and little-known. It also details the private estates that only open several times a year; the ones that tend to go under the travel radar. Elegantly designed and illustrated, the pages within are also packed full of spectacular botanical-inspired hideaways to stay, linger, shop, dine and drink at, from garden-inspired restaurants to garden-enhanced hotels. AUTHOR: Janelle McCulloch is a journalist, author and photographer of more than 20 books on architecture, interior design, travel and gardens, including 15 bestselling design titles. She divides her time between Australia, New York and London. SELLING POINTS: * This garden-lover's guide to England is both a valuable resource and inspiring coffee-table book for those who adore exploring and strolling through charming garden destinations * Organised thematically into 'gardens' and 'places to dine, drink and stay' (surrounded by the best botanical spaces), with each section broken down by region, offering user-friendly itinerary planning * Showcases many of England's best public and private gardens, historic, classic and iconic gardens, writers gardens, kitchen gardens, walled gardens, rose gardens, grand estates, restored or contemporary spaces, floral shows, beautifully landscaped expanses, and more * Lists important information about how to choose the best time of year to visit; the most beautiful garden destinations to visit with detailed itineraries; where best to see springflowers, tulips, wisteria, rhododendrons, roses, dahlias, among many others * Includes a valuable index of wonderful places and activities to be inspired by, from courses and workshops on topiary and garden embroidery to museums and galleries that offer botanical exhibitions, along with specialist nurseries, gardens stores and other garden resources, entries on floral arrangements, memorable garden tours, and DIY garden trails for those who prefer an independent experience

Hardy geraniums were the first plants to shrug off the rigours of her coastal climate and grow in Birgitte Husted Bendtsen's garden every bit as well as they did in the fertile, sheltered plots further east in Denmark. Add to this their tolerance of dogs and children, resistance to pests and diseases, interesting foliage, and delightful flowers in a wide range of colours, and it is little surprise that Birgitte developed an insatiable passion for them. In this book, she shares her knowledge of cultivating the plants and highlights the most garden worthy species and varieties. Expert cultivation advice, including comments on soil preferences and hardiness, is followed by fascinating information on pollination, and failsafe propagation secrets. Captivating colour photographs display key characteristics of hardy geraniums including their legendary range of flower colour and intricate, often highly marked, foliage. Here readers may marvel at the many cultivars of Geranium x oxonianum, enjoy favorites like Geranium 'Ann Folkard' with its striking black eye against magenta background, and covet the fine-leaved, blue-flowering Geranium himalayense. Smaller varieties ideal for growing in rockeries, containers and troughs are described along with perfect geraniums for associating with roses of all colours. Birgitte Husted Bendtsen communicates like a true enthusiast and the text is peppered with interesting anecdotes including news of an exciting variety that is prized for its blue flowers and modest stature. With over 400 species and hybrids of hardy geraniums and 450 beautiful colour photographs, this book is both rich in information and beautiful to browse. It is a long-awaited reference that will delight seasoned enthusiasts and introduce a whole new generation of gardeners to the charms of the hardy geranium.
