"Britain has more island gardens than anywhere else in the world. Some 6,000 islands are scattered around the main islands of Great Britain and Ireland, and more than 100 of these offshore islands are inhabited. Where there are people, there are gardens: lighthouse gardens, gulf-stream-tempered gardens, windswept remote gardens with knarled and ancient trees, and gardens surrounding castles and monasteries of historical significance. In this book we encounter a huge variety of habitats and gardening conditions ... What they all share is the special light and magical atmosphere that a proximity to water can bring"--Publisher's description.
