This book is thoroughly luscious, I chose a copy for myself for my birthday. It is a delight to peruse and very inspiring for gardeners and armchair admirers alike. I have now ordered a copy as a gift to pass on its gorgeous qualities.

A beautiful book of a beautiful place. Foxglove spires is my favourite garden, although a long way from where I live.
The book describes a garden lovingly created with a passion from what was virtually a cow paddock.
I thought it was beautifully produced and the story interesting.

I have been searching for this book for ages and was able to order it in one of the more common book stores but it would have cost me $20.00 more. I was so happy that it was available from fishpond. I paid by cheque and it was delivered within a week. Thank you so much.

The book was purchased as a gift and is both an inspiring and informative read. The photography is also superb and this book will be appreciated by everyone who either has an interest in gardening or has dreamed of creating something amazing.
