The Irish Times
Filtered sunshine, mists of fine rain and the warmth of the Gulf Stream make Ireland a wonderful environment in which to create a garden. In an Irish Garden displays to the full the natural advantages that this beautiful, lush island offers to the gardener.
Nearly all the gardens included in the book are privately owned, and it provides a rare and welcome opportunity to see them. In a series of delightfully informal and lively accounts by their owners, we are taken on a personal tour of each garden, sharing private pleasures and problems, successes and failures, favourite species, plans for new features, and a wealth of horticultural knowledge and experience.
Gloriously illustrated, In an Irish Garden is an intimate visit to some of Ireland's finest gardens.
