The New English Garden – Tim Richardson and Andrew Lawson

A new book about to be published by Frances Lincoln:

‘In The New English Garden the leading garden writer Tim Richardson, author of The Arcadian Friends, discusses twenty-five significant English gardens made or remade over the past decade. Together these represent a coherent overview of what remains probably the most inventive garden culture in the world.

With the benefit of an international perspective, the author surveys a wide spectrum of gardens in styles ranging from the cutting-edge naturalistic planting design of the Sheffield School to the scientific imagery of Througham Court. While many of these gardens are challenging or thought-provoking, others reflect the sensuously romantic tradition of English planting design, which has also been moving ahead in interesting ways.

Through Tim Richardson’s incisive writing, The New English Garden presents all that is most interesting about garden-making in England in the twenty-first century and is beautifully illustrated by Andrew Lawson’s photography of some of England’s most famous gardens, from Prince Charles’s garden at Highgrove, Christopher Lloyd’s garden at Great Dixter and Arabella Lennox-Boyd’s garden at Gresgarth right up to the Olympic Park in 2012.’

Oh, and Pettifers. And we’re on the cover! (Big smile)

  1. Some days after our group of women from Canada visited Pettifers (on a cool and rainy day), Tim Richardson spoke to us about trends in English gardening and this book. I knew that Pettifers was highlighted, I didn’t know it rated the cover photograph. Congratulations! I’m ordering my copy soon and will drool over every page.
