'A world-renowned horticultural tour de force, Arabella Lennox-Boyd is one of the most accomplished landscape designers of our time' House and Garden

'Arabella Lennox-Boyd's memoir-like account is a complete joy to read as well as to look at ... A must' Country Life

'Testament to an extraordinarily creative and blooming life' Tatler

Arabella Lennox-Boyd is one of the foremost garden designers in the world. She has created some of the country's most stunning private gardens, in addition to commissions for the Serpentine Sackler Gallery and projects for Sting and Trudie Styler.

Looking back over her extraordinary career, Arabella takes us on a tour of the gardens that have had a particular interest or meaning to her. She describes the inspirations that led to the final design and plant combination. Famed for her herbaceous borders and a passionate collector of plants and shrubs, Arabella imparts her expert wisdom on planting and offers practical advice on landscaping.

The book will be illustrated with beautiful photography and accompanied by Arabella's sketches and planting plans.
