In England, gardening and garden visiting are national obsessions. The National Gardens Scheme was founded in 1937 with the aim of raising money for charity by opening gardens of quality and interest to the public. From 600 gardens that opened in the Scheme's first year, the ranks have swelled to nearly 4000 today, many of them privately owned and opened for just a few days each year.
The Gardens of England gives you the opportunity to enjoy fifty of the country's garden gems from the comfort of your armchair. Each chapter is written by a different leading gardens expert, and surveys ten gardens opened for the NGS during a particular period. The celebrated gardens writer George Plumptre, Chief Executive of the NGS. provides an engaging introduction on the tradition of garden visiting, and well-known personalities, from Mary Berry to Alan Titchmarsh, offer their own thoughts on the NGS. Featuring established and new gardens of all styles, this is a book that no lover of the English garden and garden history should be without.
