Traditional English Gardens explores and celebrates English style in twenty-eight gardens in the care of the National Trust. The product of many influences -- a passion for plants, a mild climate suitable for a wide range of species, the English love of the countryside -- the gardens shown in the book strike a balance between the formal Italianate style and the Robisonian wilder garden; the ordered man-made garden combined with the idea of the natural Garden of Eden. From the genius of Hidcote Manor to the grandeur of Ham House, from the glory of Mottisfont Abbey to the enchantment of King Henry's Hunting Lodge, these English gardens are masterpieces of skillful planting and display an astonishing array of gardening ideas.
