This may be hard to believe from a book this beautiful {eg: there are full-colour gatefold pics that reveal a section of the garden in different seasons and these are gorgeous} but this has quite a bit of useful garden info.

This is a garden that is not open to the public so this book is all anyone will ever see of a true Victorian garden, still kept to the standards of times when huge numbers of gardeners toiled to keep the great house filled with flowers and its kitchens supplied with vegetables and fruit. The photographs are breathtaking and so is the wealth behind it all.
