Product Description

Monty Don, Britain''s treasured horticulturalist, and renowned photographer Derry Moore explore iconic and little-known gardens throughout America.

For years, Britain''s much-loved gardener Monty Don has been leading us down all kinds of garden paths to show us why green spaces are vital to our wellbeing and culture. Now, he travels across America with celebrated photographer Derry Moore to trace the fascinating histories of outdoor spaces which epitomize or redefine the American garden. In the book, which complements the BBC television series, they look at a variety of gardens and outdoor spaces at the center of American history including the slave garden at Thomas Jefferson''s Monticello estate, Longwood Gardens in Delaware, and Middleton Place in South Carolina. Together, they visit verdant oases designed by modernist architects such as Richard Neutra. They delve into urban outdoor spaces, looking at New York City''s Central Park, Lurie Garden at the southern end of Millennium Park in Chicago, and the Seattle Spheres. Derry Moore gives his unique perspective on gardens across the United States, including several not featured in the TV series. These include unpublished photographs of Bob Hope''s Palm Springs home and garden of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Featuring luscious photography and Don''s engaging commentary, this book will leave you with a richer understanding of how America''s most important gardens came to be designed.

I was so looking forward to this book, because as in America his DVDs won''t play here, so I can''t buy them. Within a few minutes of flipping through, I regretted buying the book. As a super fan of the shows, he offers the best garden-porn I''ve ever seen! His travels especially to Italy inspired me exponentially. But this book..... geez the photography is at least 20 years behind in technology and the layouts are sparse and uninformed. Pictures seem to make up what seems to be 20% of the book. He travels to amazing gardens, and just offers mostly plant shots. Really?! Do you not understand that we are a visual culture, especially now? Gardens ARE are visual culture and should be celebrated to the highest! Speaking as an American, we need the photo layouts that are dripping with nature''s best example flanked by human influences. All people need to be romanticized as to why these gardens are unique and glorious. Monty please hire an American firm/photographer to help the world "buy" into why gardens are essential!!!!!!! Your travels and experience could help to inspire the world! It really did break my heart to be disappointed by your work.

Unfortunately poorly produced
Reviewed in the United States on October 31, 2020
The images lack dimension--color is flat-- images out of focus due to stretching the resolution on the double page spreads. The production is lackluster. I had high hopes for this book but am returning my copy.

Pictures are mostly trees and water
Reviewed in the United States on August 3, 2021
The photos are disappointing - page after page of large trees and water. The pictures don’t support the descriptions. For example, there is a description of a garden with 900 varieties of camellias and not one picture of them. I’ll stick to watching his shows and not buy... See more
