As Seen on the BBC. British Gardens in Time takes four iconic gardens, each a product of its age, and provides a fascinating window into the creators and events that shaped them. The stories of their creation include obsession, escape, social ambition, political intrigue, heartbreak, bankruptcy and disaster. In unravelling these remarkable stories we reach back over the centuries to see these great gardens through fresh eyes. From the magnificent landscape garden at Stowe created by Bridgeman, Kent and Lancelot 'Capability' Brown; the Victorian masterpiece of Biddulph Grange; the romantic Arts & Crafts retreat at Nymans; and Christopher Lloyd's plantsman's paradise at Great Dixter, you will hear of adventure, innovation and visionary individuals who changed the way we create our gardens and the plants we grow. Author Katie Campbell weaves the stories of these four exemplary gardens into a history of British gardening from the earliest cultivated spaces to the present day, exploring trends, influences and pioneers. Fascinating historic detail and atmospheric storytelling make this a compelling read. British Gardens in Time includes a foreword by CHRIS BEARDSHAW, specially commissioned photography by NATHAN HARRISON, and extensive archive illustrations. Author KATIE CAMPBELL lectures widely, leads garden tours and writes on the social history of gardening. Her other books published by Frances Lincoln are Icons of Twentieth-Century Landscape Design and Paradise of Exiles.
