Royal Gardens of The World
Royal Gardens of The World by Mark Lane
A sumptuous exploration of 21 of the world's most celebrated royal gardens, from the formal splendour of Versailles and the organic, sustainable Highgrove, to the Taj Mahal in India and the Peterhof Palace in Russia. Each featured garden will include the history, plantings and evolution of the garden as well as portraits of key plants and information about the design and layout. A journey of architecturally significant houses, classic gardens and even planting ideas which range from modest to grand, simple to ornate.
