Summary Note This book is a stunning exploration of 21 of the world's most celebrated royal gardens, from the delightful Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and the organic, sustainable Highgrove to the Castle of Mey in Scotland.

Further afield, lies the Taj Mahal, the Tokyo Imperial Palace and Peter the Great's Summer Palace and Gardens in St Petersburg. Each featured garden will include the history, plantings and evolution of the garden as well as plant portraits of key plants and information about the design and layout of each. Countries included are: England, Scotland, Austria, Bali, Belgium, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Netherlands, Russia, Spain and Sweden.
