Book Description: In this expertly compiled and visually captivating history, Julia Smith Berrall traces the ever-changing relationship between Americans and their gardens from the 17th century through the Victorian era. Stroll down her garden path to traverse the distance between the utilitarian plots of the early colonial settlers and the elaborate banquet-hall centerpieces of the late 19th century. Learn which flowers and foliage were available and how they were painstakingly obtained, arranged and displayed. Drawing from portraits, still-lifes and the written accounts of early American garden writers and visitors from abroad, Berrall has assembled an indispensable guide to the accurate re-creation of early domestic spaces and a rich history for anyone seeking insight into our most delicate roots. This is more than a story of gardens and the blossoms they yielded; it is an exploration of American taste, culture, pleasure and ingenuity that illustrates our long love affair with our most ephemeral possessions.

Book Description: Monty Don, Britain's treasured horticulturalist, explores iconic and little-known gardens throughout America. For decades, 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 to trace the fascinating histories of outdoor spaces which variously epitomize or redefine the American garden. Don looks at a huge variety of gardens and outdoor spaces at the center of American history from the White House Kitchen Garden and the garden at the British Embassy in DC, to the slave garden at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello estate and Middleton Place in South Carolina. On the West coast, he visits verdant oases designed by Richard Neutra, Charles Eames, and Frank Lloyd Wright. Don delves into contemporary interpretations of outdoor space, looking at how urban gardens such as New York City's High Line feed our souls, and how some can even feed our bodies - such as the Edible Schoolyard in San Francisco and guerrilla gardeners' urban farm in inner-city Detroit. The book also invites us to take a peek into the gardens of well-known figures such as Bette Midler, Lionel Richie, and Anna Wintour. Throughout the volume, celebrated photographer Derry Moore brings each of these gardens to life with splendid images that capture the settings' unique light, ambiance, and sense of space. Featuring luscious photography and Monty Don's engaging and informed commentary, this book will leave you with a richer understanding of how and why America's most important gardens came to be designed.
