199 pp over 100 illus. The book demonstrates with the aid of illustrations that from the eleventh century at least, plants were grown and gardens laid out for their beauty as well as for their usefulness, and that gardening was linked to the planting of orchards and the formation of parks. While the main emphasis of the book is on English gardens, chapters deal with the influence of Southern Europe, notably Spain and Italy, and with the gradual introduction of foreign plants."
