This title contains an absorbing collection of essays spanning a wide range of periods and varied subjects including: the 17th-century garden of the Earls of Salisbury at Quickswood; a reappraisal of the work of Charles Bridgeman at Tring Park; the influence of the East India Company on Hertfordshire's gardens; the landscapes designed by Richard Woods at Brocket Park and Newsells Bury; a 'lost' 18th-century garden at Roxford; the influences behind the creation of John Scott's grotto at Ware; the famous Victorian orchid nursery of Frederick Sander; the creation of Clarence Park, St. Albans; the work of the Pulham family in the 19th and early 20th centuries; and, the effects of wartime shortages on the creation of the gardens at Queenswood.
