Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This text tells the story of six diverse gardens around the UK that are currently being restored. It is a celebration of garden design, of plants and plantsmanship and horticultural dedication. Through archaeology, pollen analysis, old records and photographs, the restorers aim to rediscover the lost beauty of these enchanting gardens. The programme explores old gardening techniques, timeless themes, persistent fashions and modern developments and will have lots to teach gardeners, designers and historians. Specially commissioned photography charts the progress of the gardeners as they uncover the original planting and restore the gardens to their former glory.

TV tie-in.

Includes index.
