Sinopsis:

The Garden Room---a place both for plants and people --- takes many forms. This book is a lavishly photographed tour through twenty five garden rooms, from the soaring stone and glass creations of the mid-nineteenth century, green and lush with leafy vegetation, to their more modest modern counterparts, wood and glass adjuncts to the house, warmed by the sun and perfumed with the smell of potted plants and flowering climbers. Each room has its own special aura: still reflections of serried terra-cotta pots in the Victorian conservatory at Bodnant; the varnished clutter of a showman's wagon in the leafy shade of the New Forest; plumbago twining through the chinoiserie details of the Crystal room designed by Clough Williams Ellis; an upright piano and a tabby cat beside the bust of Queen Victoria in Nicola Bayley's conservatory. Some rooms provide spaces for grand entertaining, others a setting for intimate meals among the potted lilies. All provide a variety of use and enjoyment - as well as a fierce dedication to the nurturing of plants.
