Summary
  • A pictorial tour of the world's most innovative new gardens includes the Tree Museum in Rapperswil, Switzerland; the Aloe Farm in Hartbeespoort, South Africa; Ichigaya Forest in Tokyo, Japan; and Mordecai Children's Garden in Denver, Colorado
  • "Intrepid plant expert Christopher Woods set out on a global quest in search of inspired new gardens, and presents fifty of the best here. With wit and humor, he describes the most arresting features of public parks in exotic locations like Dubai, mission-redefining botanic gardens in Chile and Australia, and the most enviable details of lavish private estates and gemlike city yards. Throughout, he reveals the fascinating people, plants, and stories that make these gardens so lust-worthy. As inspiring as it is insightful, Gardenlust takes readers on a luscious tour of six continents that is sure to spark wanderlust."--Dust jacket
