Monet's garden at Giverny is the world's most visited garden. It inspired about 500 treasured paintings and reflects Monet's passion for gardening and eye for colour. Containing photography by award-winning photographer Vivian Russell, this volume reveals the ideas and planting schemes that underpin this lovingly maintained garden so that readers can learn from and replicate some of the wonderful planting schemes to be found at Giverny - from Oriental water lily pond to wild flower garden, from rose-covered pergola to paintbox beds. A short introduction to Giverny is followed by the colour photographs, with detailed captions describing the plants and techniques that make up the garden. There are also planting schemes, inspired by Giverny, to try out in your own garden.

Table of Contents

Debra on
Beautiful book. As a person that has been to Monet's Garden in Giverny, France, it is a great book to reflect on the plants that I saw there. It is also a fantastic book to try and recreate similar looks Monet's Garden. I have found the book useful for it's plant types and what works well together. For me this book is a must.
