This book makes a wonderful substitute for travel in these difficult times." --The English Garden "Adventures in Eden offers a way to get a glimpse of far-off garden perfection from the comfort and safety of home... readers will find much inspiration in both the words and images, as well as plenty of planting and design ideas to adapt at home." --Horticulture "This image-rich peek at 50 gardens in Britain, Ireland, Scandinavia, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Spain... leaves me longing to visit many of the gardens." --The Washington Post "A richly illustrated tour of 50 private contemporary gardens across Europe, chosen and led by landscape designer Carolyn Mullet." --Gardens Illustrated "United by plant-led design, the well-chosen examples include the private domains of Dan Pearson and Tom Stuart-Smith, and others created by Europe's horticultural elite.
