Thanks to its dramatic landscape & unique conditions, the Lake District has a long history of distinguished gardens in many differe 3.nt styles. While the lakes & mountains make unbeatable backdrops, the reliable moisture & peaty soil are ideal for a large range of plants. This book features over 40 gardens, all open to the public, that exemplify this heritage. Among the gardens are 17th-century Levens Hall, renowned for its topiary; picturesque gardens such as Rydal Hall; woodland & parkland gardens; gardens made by Wordsworth & Ruskin; grand 19th-century rhododendron gardens; elaborate gardens designed by or in the style of Thomas Mawson; & contemporary plantsman's gardens. On the western coastline there are gardens in Mediterranean or subtropical styles. The garden descriptions include each owner's choice of favourite plants, with explanations of the plants' virtues & the purposes & situations for which they are suited. Taking readers beyond the lakes & fells to some less well-known treasures, this book is for gardeners & visitors to the area alike.
