Description

A whimsical and beautiful book celebrating these hidden gems of the National Trust - from specially made secret gardens to overlooked corners of famous gardens and re-discovered lost gardens.

Stunning photographs of the Trust's idiosyncratic gardens are accompanied by a light text meditating on the magic of the secret garden, and bringing in fascinating historical and botanical details. The book will include secret mazes, hidden corners, walled gardens, lost gardens, gardens that are only open one day a year, follies, orchards, dens, memorials, strange statues, stumperies, huts, ice houses, wendy houses, fairy gates and pixie houses. The gardens featured include the palm-filled Overbeck's in Devon, Peckover House in Cambridgeshire, which bursts with exotic specimens found on Victorian plant-hunting expeditions, and Monk's House in East Sussex, where the garden proved a refuge for Virginia Woolf.
