Opis: Gardens of Cornwall - Katherine Lambert

Set against some Europe's most dramatic natural scenery, the gardens of Cornwall are stunning in their impact. The first reaction of most visitors is awed delight at the vibrant luxuriance of the planting: for the serendipity of Cornwall's damp, mild climate has made it an ideal home for many of the great plant-hunter collections. But the springtime show of camellias, rhododendrons and magnolias that rank almost as the national emblems of Cornwall is just one strand in the astonishing diversity of Cornish gardens. Many of the historic estates - Tresco, Trebah and Glendurgan, St Michael's Mount and Mount Edgcumbe - taking advantage of their position on coast or combe, have provided for themselves carefully crafted settings against the backdrop of the sea. Heligan is that extraordinary rarity an intact Victorian estate, while Antony and other gardens with old roots have embraced new trends with style and exuberance. Contemporary like the free falling jungle at Lamorran House, Barbara Hepworth's impeccably designed set for her sculptures in St Ives and the hugely ambitious sculpture garden at Tremenheere are individual statements of the highest quality. Most ambitious of all, Tim Smith's Eden Project expands the whole concept of the garden into a new realm - almost a new world. In this book garden expert Katherine Lambert takes us on an intriguing tour of the gardens of Cornwall, from the Devon border to the offshore island of Tresco. Alex Ramsay's superb photographs reveal the gardens in all their glory. This lovely book will make any garden enthusiast eager to plan a trip out west. Good Book Guide A Good Read. Well-written travelogue featuring 23 gardens, large and small. Oxford Times Gardens of Cornwall is packed with stunning photographs revealing the gardens at their very best and with informative passages regarding the creators, past and present, of these beautiful gardens and estates, we are sorely tempted to take our own journey around these treasures...buy the book, you will be inspired! St Ives Times & Echo An armchair tour of some of the great Cornish gardens and historic estates. BBC Gardens Illustrated Many of Cornwall's most impressive gardens are on the coast. This beautifully shot book chronicles the best, including Tresco, Trebah, St Michael's Mount, and Barbara Hepworth's Sculpture Garden in St Ives. Coast This book is as luscious and beautiful as the gardens it portrays. West Briton It is safe to assume that Katherine's words and Alex's photos will encourage you to soon start your journey around Cornwall's garden treasures. Cornwall Life A great starting point to the county's horticultural splendour. Independent on Sunday An intriguing tour of Cornwall's gardens, with Alex Ramsay's superb photographs revealing the gardens in all their splendour. Western Morning News
