This new reference book is for all those professionals, agents, owners, designers and managers concerned with the many aspects of managing historic gardens, parks and design landscapes. The comprehensive scope emphasizes the importance of the principles of management, and the historic, scientific, botanical, horticultural, economic, legal and technical aspects essential for success. There is no other up-to-date book on the subject; the last one was written in 1982.

Review:

'Never before has such a wealth of advice and information been assembled alongside historical perspectives.' John Sales (Acclaimed horticulture teacher) (Horticulture Week)

This [title] may not sound relevant to those who do not occupy stately homes,but the advice on best practice in this terrific book is just what gardeners have been waiting for....Much of the information, scaled down, is invaluable to ordinary gardeners...At £35 it is an expensive book, but it more than earns its price. In it I discovered plenty of things I did not know....The focus of the book is how to garden like pros, as well as how to save money and time...The advice on best practice in this terrific book is just what gardeners have been waiting for. (Daily Telegraph)

This is the all-singing, all-dancing reference manual for professional gardeners, garden managers and students of gardening... If you only have space or finance for one reference book in your garden office or bait room, I would suggest that it should be this one. (Professional Gardener)

It would be difficult to over-emphasise the value of this book... anyone working in the management of these highly important sites should keep at hand. Well laid out and superbly illustrated, one can read it as one whole work, keep it as a reference volume or just dip in and out of it. (Garden Design Journal)

A good case can be made for asserting that this was the most significant book on historic gardens produced in recent years. (Historic Gardens Review)
