Britainâ€™s National Trust has the finest collection of gardens ever assembled under one ownershipÂ—the greatest in number, diversity, historic importance, and quality. Together, they form the worldâ€™s most important collection of cultivated plants, distinguished by their beauty, rarity, historical interest, and scientific value. This new edition of Gardens of the National Trust has been substantially revised to showcase superb new photography and to introduce newly acquired properties. Historically and horticulturally, a vivid picture of the gardens is painted, with all the major periods represented. Both a practical guide and a rich source of inspiration, the book includes horticultural details, a complete plant list, and a section on the many other Trust gardens to visit. Throughout, splendid color images by the countryâ€™s leading photographers bring to life the beauty of each garden.
