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 meander through an English garden in full floraison. The sweetly scented gardens and gentle landscapes of this great country have long drawn horticultural 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. It's the perfect gift for any garden lover and shows you how to make your next visit to England a truly memorable one.

MEDIA REVIEWS

’This is a fascinating book. Whilst I decided it was a view from outside, this made it all the more relevant in some strange way. I know I will dip in and out of this book and I have already learned from it.’ -- The Blackberry Garden
