Inspiration from the UK's finest gardens is paired with practical information on how to apply design elements and planting styles to suit any garden or space

From the grand lakes at Stowe and the sculpted yew hedges at Powys Castle through to the wildflowers at Thomas Hardy's cottage and the herb-filled kitchen garden at Avebury Manor, the gardens of the National Trust are a fantastic source of inspiration for gardeners of any level. This book shows how different elements in the National Trust's gardens can be applied to any garden, whether it is large space or just a window box. National Trust head gardeners provide unique insights and tips throughout, explaining how to apply their expertise to reinterpret a garden while still retaining one's own individual creative style. There are chapters covering how to introduce design elements of structure and texture, what to plant in each season to bring color, various water elements, pots and containers, delicious edible planting, and wild gardens that will thrive throughout the year. This practical guide is a sumptuously illustrated, inspirational source of creative ideas that can be adopted and adapted to suit all gardens, no matter what their size, shape, or budget.

Jacq Barber is a gardener, design historian, and freelance writer and lecturer. She spent nearly a decade working for the National Trust, visiting many of the gardens featured in this book.
