With a long and distinguished history of gardening excellence, Great Britain and Ireland contain some of world's top luxury gardens. This magnificent volume features horticultural marvels throughout these lands. Whether a mansion, castle or hotel, most are open to the public. These gardens run the gamut--ranging from the classical rolling English parklands of Capability Brown, to the exuberant flower beds at Sissinghurst and the stark post-modernism of Derek Jarman's lunar landscapes.
