Greenhouses have universal appeal, fusing together cultures and countries under one glass roof. In their new book, photographers India Hobson and Magnus Edmondson take you on a worldwide journey through their favourite botanical spaces.

The Haarkon Greenhouse Tour began as a self-initiated adventure in Oxford's botanical gardens four years ago. Since then, Magnus and India have visited countless locations in the UK, Europe, America, Asia and beyond in search of dream greenhouses, capturing dramatic palm houses, tropical hothouses and private potting sheds along the way.

Divided into seven thematic chapters - History, Specimen, Community, Research, Pleasure, Hobbyist and Architecture - the featured greenhouses are depicted via a series of photo-essays that draw out the style, plant collections and character of each space. The final chapter, #Haarkon House, shows us how to bring the greenhouse aesthetic home with advice on selecting, styling and caring for plants.
