Gardener's Labyrinth: Portraits of People, Plants and Placesby Patrick Kinmonth, Tessa Traeger
An evocation of the British garden past, present, and future, A Gardener's Labyrinth celebrates 50 visionary gardeners and their glorious gardens. Illustrated with outstanding images by acclaimed photographer Tessa Traeger, the book reveals a history of gardens from tiny city allotments to country estates and formality to wilderness, as seen through the eyes of those who have shaped them. Whether as designers or writers, horticulturists or conservationists, explorers or scholars, all have enriched and furthered the tradition of gardening. Patrick Kinmonth unravels the principles and philosophies that have informed the gardeners' work and explores new directions for gardens of the future. A brief biography of each gardener completes this elegant book, designed by Stephen Gan of Visionaire magazine.
