Adventures in Eden: An Intimate Tour of the Private Gardens of Europe

Adventures in Eden is a gorgeous insider's look at 50 private European stately gardens written and curated by Carolyn Mullet. Due out 10th Nov 2020 from Workman Publishing on their Timber Press imprint, it's 332 pages and will be available in hardcover format.

This is a beautifully made and well laid out homage to the horticultural arts. Each of the 50 entries are lavishly illustrated, with many full page color photos. They represent a number of styles and aesthetics - mostly (but not all) on the grand scale. Nevertheless, there are a multitude of good inspirations for scaling down to use in our own domestic gardens. 

Five stars. This would make a superlative selection for gardening aficionados, a special gift, students, designers/horticulturists, library use, or as a beautiful coffee-table book to enjoy and revisit. This one has high "re-readability". 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
