In Remarkable gardens, the beauty of South African gardens is revealed by Craig Fraser and Nini Bairnsfather Cloete. Featuring sumptuous photographs and engaging text, this book combines history and horticulture to take its reader on a fascinating journey through 20 of the most magical private gardens in the country. A multifaceted kaleidescope of gardens is featured, from those that are carefully and formally landscaped to those left to their own free-spirited and natural devices; The gardens are located in a diverse group of regions and climates. These range from the majesty of the Cape Floral Kingdom to the Little Karoo, the Drakensberg mountains and KwaZulu-Natal; Conversations with the gardens’ owners illuminate their histories, with the trials, tribulations and triumphs of their personal journeys shedding light on the creation of each garden; Landscape elements featured in the book include water gardens, sculpture gardens, parterres, herb and vegetable gardens and farm gardens. While most of these gardens usually remain hidden from view, in Remarkable Gardens of South Africa their stunning scenery, rich history and intriguing diversity are explored with romantic, inspiring results.
