Product Overview

If you are looking for a celebration of life in a small space, turn to the French garden for the answers. The Evening Standard

French country gardening has experienced a renaissance in recent years. While the great French heritage still thrives, its traditions now provide inspiration for fresh delights and creative expression, as vividly demonstrated in this beautifully photographed volume.

The book reaches into every corner of France, from Normandy to the Riviera, from Picardy to the Pyrenees, revealing in exquisite detail the full extent and exciting diversity of the modern French country garden. A magical and intimate grandmother's garden on the ancient Via Aurlia combines fruits, herbs, flowers, and vegetables; gardens for the five senses focus on sensual stimulation; natural gardens protect local ecosystems; and formal gardens incorporate witty and subversive variations on the traditional pattern. 236 color illustrations.
