A fabulous book about designing gardens great and small, packed with wisdom on the abiding principles of gorgeous garden design.


Russell Page was one of the most legendary gardeners and landscapers of the last century. He designed gardens great and small for clients around the world. A rare combination of born plantsman and garden architect, he was a master of colour, form and structure. Page also understood that most tricky dimension of garden design: the passage of time. From Longleat to the Frick Collection, his gardens can be enjoyed to this day.

Packed with wisdom and beautiful writing, this book offers a unique perspective on great garden design and is essential reading for every gardener.

'One of the most thoughtful and civilized gardening books ever written, by a master designer' Daily Telegraph
