A lavish gift book that provides a sneak peek into the most spectacular private gardens of Europe. Wherever Carolyn Mullet travels, she seeks out new gardens to explore. In Adventures in Eden, she invites readers along with her on a photo-rich armchair tour that illuminates the unrivaled beauty and artistry of European gardens. Her journey across Europe profiles 50 private gardens in Belgium, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Scotland and Spain. In short profiles supported by lush photography, the reader will learn the history of each landscape, why specific plants and designs were chosen and how the garden connects to its surroundings. Some of the featured gardens were designed by their owners, while others were designed by some of the biggest names in garden design: Tom Stuart Smith, Andy Melangier and Louis Benech, among others. Sumptuously illustrated with hundreds of photographs from some of the leading names in garden photography, Adventures in Eden is a must-have gift book for gardeners, globetrotter, and dreamers.
