Product Details

Idle afternoons were made for books like this one. Flipping through the 472 pages is akin to taking an armchair tour of many of the world’s greatest gardens. The hardcover book is structured geographically, and it ranges from England to Asia and Italy to India and beyond.

It’s jam-packed with color photographs of more than 250 gardens created by renowned landscape architects, garden designers, and horticulturalists. Stylistically and historically, the book surveys a period that runs from the 14th century to present times, and from Versailles to a private garden in Morocco.

A wide range of designers are featured - from Andre Le Notre (1613-1700) and Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) to contemporary talents like Piet Oudolf and Dan Pearson. Concise and helpful text blocks contain essential information about each garden, often including the names of specific plants. This book is a captivating voyage and a superb resource, filled with design ideas and inspiration for gardeners of all levels.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.
