There is nothing lovelier than England in June, when it's in full blossom, when the sun is sinking down behind the hedgerows and the Queen Elizabeth rose, with its palest of pale pink petals, is unfolding into glorious summer bloom. Nothing lifts the spirit more than a glorious meander through an English garden in full floraison. The sweetly scented gardens and gentle landscapes of this great country have long drawn horticulture fans and Anglophiles searching for its natural idylls, made so redolent in literature, film, photography, poetry and song. Every summer, people from all over the world travel to England to stay at charming guest houses with bucolic gardens, drink at country pubs with flower-decked beer gardens, wander from gate to gate on garden tours, shop at stores for irresistible garden tools and seeds, and dine at cafés and restaurants with floral-themed interiors. Now, this beautiful new book by bestselling author Janelle McCulloch - part guidebook and part armchair delight for garden lovers - shows you where to find these wonderful garden destinations, from the celebrated and famous to the secret and little-known. It also details the private estates that only open several times a year; the ones that tend to go under the travel radar. Elegantly designed and illustrated, the pages within are also packed full of spectacular botanical-inspired hideaways to stay, linger, shop, dine and drink at, from garden-inspired restaurants to garden-enhanced hotels. AUTHOR: Janelle McCulloch is a journalist, author and photographer of more than 20 books on architecture, interior design, travel and gardens, including 15 bestselling design titles. She divides her time between Australia, New York and London. SELLING POINTS: * This garden-lover's guide to England is both a valuable resource and inspiring coffee-table book for those who adore exploring and strolling through charming garden destinations * Organised thematically into 'gardens' and 'places to dine, drink and stay' (surrounded by the best botanical spaces), with each section broken down by region, offering user-friendly itinerary planning * Showcases many of England's best public and private gardens, historic, classic and iconic gardens, writers gardens, kitchen gardens, walled gardens, rose gardens, grand estates, restored or contemporary spaces, floral shows, beautifully landscaped expanses, and more * Lists important information about how to choose the best time of year to visit; the most beautiful garden destinations to visit with detailed itineraries; where best to see springflowers, tulips, wisteria, rhododendrons, roses, dahlias, among many others * Includes a valuable index of wonderful places and activities to be inspired by, from courses and workshops on topiary and garden embroidery to museums and galleries that offer botanical exhibitions, along with specialist nurseries, gardens stores and other garden resources, entries on floral arrangements, memorable garden tours, and DIY garden trails for those who prefer an independent experience

“The meticulousness of the Longs’ research is awesome” in this historical account of the plot to brand a British naval official as a Catholic traitor (The Guardian). 1679, England: Fear of conspiracy and religious terrorism have provoked panic in politicians and a zealous reaction from the legal system. Everywhere, or so it is feared, Catholic agents are plotting to overthrow the King. Samuel Pepys, Secretary of the Admiralty, finds himself charged with treason and facing a show trial and execution. Imprisoned in the Tower of London, Pepys sets to work investigating his mysterious accuser, Colonel John Scott, and uncovers a life riddled with ambition, forgery, treason and—ultimately—murder. Using rare access to Pepys’ account of the affair, James Long and Ben Long brilliantly evoke a turbulent period in England’s history—and tell the forgotten story of the two most dangerous years in the life of the legendary diarist. “As gripping as any thriller.” —The Times (London) “I couldn’t put it down, and there aren’t many books on the seventeenth century you can say that about.” —History Today

It is 1679 and England is awash with suspicion. Fear of conspiracy and religious terrorism has provoked panic in politicians and a zealous reaction from the legal system. Everywhere - or so it is feared - Catholic agents are plotting to overthrow the king. Now Samuel Pepys, Secretary of the Admiralty, finds himself in a position few people then or now would have expected - charged with treason. Imprisoned in the Tower of London and abandoned by the embattled king, Pepys knows that time is running out before his show trial and execution. So, with customary brilliance, he sets to work investigating his mysterious accuser, Colonel John Scott, and uncovers a life riddled with ambition, forgery, treason and - ultimately - murder. Using rare access to Pepys' own account of the affair, James Long and Ben Long brilliantly evoke a turbulent period in England's history - and tell the forgotten story of the two most dangerous years in the life of the legendary diarist.
