Since Miles Hadfield's A HISTORY OF BRITISH GARDENING (1960, updated 1979) no single work has surveyed the new perspectives of the last twenty years. This book tells the story of the English gardener's relationship with nature through the last one thousand years. It shows how the gardens of each period reflect the political, social and cultural life, and how they affected architecture, clothes and manners, and how ideas and plants from other continents were adapted to form the art of English garden making.
