The Finest Gardens in Wales


    Using informative, evocative text and stunning imagery, garden writer and broadcaster Tony Russell captures the very essence of the finest gardens within Wales, covering their history, design, plants and personalities along the way. From Anglesey in the north-west to the Wye Valley in the south-east, this book discovers just why Wales is regarded as having one of the best and most diverse collections of gardens in the world. Within these pages you will find grand landscapes such as at Dyffryn and Powis Castle, historical gems like Erddig and Plas Tan y Bwlch, national icons at Bodnant and the National Botanic Garden of Wales, superb garden restorations at Plas Cadnant and Aberglasney, flamboyant designs such as Portmeirion and Dewstow and world-class plant collections at Plas Newydd and Plantasia. All the gardens featured within this book allow public access at some time during the year. The Finest Gardens in Wales is essential reading for anyone with even the slightest interest in gardens and will undoubtedly become a classic in its genre, a book that will appeal to gardeners and non-gardeners alike and will raise the profile of Welsh gardens even further.
