photographs by Andrew Lawson

Gardening writer Ursula Buchan has combined forces with garden photographer Andrew Lawson to explore the English garden and capture its richness and diversity. In this updated revision of a classic work, Ursula Buchan takes us on a delightful tour through the history of the English garden by focusing on the classic gardens that not only survive but are open to visitors, so you can see for yourself.

Ursula explains the historical trends and the work of garden makers of the past that have shaped the English gardens we see today. With a wealth of outstanding examples, illustrated with more than 350 photographs, she describes many garden styles, themes, elements and influences. Future visits to these gardens will be illuminated richly by this book.

Ursula Buchan is an award-winning garden journalist, author and TV presenter of flower shows for Channel 4.

Andrew Lawson is widely regarded as England's leading garden photographer. He holds the Royal Horticultural Society's Gold Medal for Photography and the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Garden Writer's Guild.
