"thought-provoking text provides a tightly knit commentary on each garden with plenty of horticultural information and potted biographies of the designer or garden creator ... all 25 gardens in this book deserve their place, each contributing to a visual treat of a book."

(Clare Foster House & Garden)

'Tim writes insightfully about the 25 gardens he has chosen for the book'

( The English Garden)

 "Richardson delivers an excellent overview of the current state of landscape design in England ... This book?s spot-on combination of pithy prose and drool-worthy images will make it a sure hit with landscape-design professionals and armchair gardeners alike"

( Library Journal (US))

"readers with only a vest-pocket backyard to till can find ideas worth adapting on a smaller scale"

( Architectural Digest (US))

"This book is a masterpiece, and will come to be seen as the classic statement of English gardens at the start of the 21st century."

(Charles Quest-Ritson Country Life)

'No one writes better about the English gardening scene than Tim Richardson. He has a formidable range of reference and a brilliant way with words. . . The book is a big, lush production, superbly put together. Most of the photographs are by Andrew Lawson (nobody is better) and they are well used, in luscious double spreads of reflecting pools and stilt hedges, eremurus and echinaceas, miscanthus and stipa. . . . The great strength of The New English Garden is to show what a various creature that garden is . . . The overall impression this book gives is not about conformity in garden design, but delicious, untrammelled variety.'

(Anna Pavord The World of Interiors)

'Intelligent, though-provoking and occasionally contentious. If you are serious about contemporary English gardens, this is a book you cannot do without'

( Gardens Illustrated)

"Superb photographs show both the explosive detail in the beds and the sweep of the landscapes, and Richardson's text looks firmly at the intellectual as well as the horticultural and design content of these gardens."

( Historic Gardens Review)

'a sumptuous record-  much to admire - and envy.'

( Country Living)

?gloriously photographed book ? Richardson, one of the punchiest writers around, has taken a risk by including historic gardens that are more ?renewed? than new, but, as ever, he pulls it off.?

( The Sunday Times)

'the best kind of book to have by your side ... a big lush production, superbly put together ... most of the photographs are by Andrew Lawson (nobody is better) ... So, in your mind, you might already have glued this book to the coffee table.  Don't.  Richardson is a terrific writer.  The great strength of The New English Garden is to show what a various creature that garden is.'

(Anna Pavord The Independent)

?one of the most important and interesting gardening books published this year ? Richardson writes elegantly and perceptively ? Lawson?s photographs are of sparkling quality and depth?

(Ursula Buchan The Spectator)

?There can be few garden observers who are more knowledgeable and curious about gardens and garden design than Tim Richardson.?

( Garden Design Journal)

?a finely written book, glorious to look at, provocative, deeply admiring of the current excellence of English garden making, and with its own cutting-edge sense of fun.?

( The Lady)

"Gorgeous photography means you can almost smell the roses as you turn the pages strolling through 24 of the grandest gardens created in the past decade"

( You magazine (Mail on Sunday))

 "the author admirably and eloquently provides a survey of 25 significant gardens made or remade in the past decade. .. his erudite text, complemented by sumptuous photography by Andrew Lawson, captures the actuality and spirit of time and place."

( The Garden)
