Full Description

An edited selection from articles on notable English gardens visited by Loudon and his wife between 1829 and 1842 and written up by him for publication in his Gardener’s Magazine. It benefits from the editor’s selection of good contemporary illustrations of these gardens additional to those used in the Gardener’s Magazine itself.
