Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » With stands of towering bamboo, palms the size of advertising hoardings and an abundance of brilliantly coloured flowering plants (bougainvillea, red ginger, the flaming trumpet vine) and succulent orchids, the gardens here are showy and dramatic, yet at the same time the contrast between nature and order can create havens of serenity deeper than anything that can be summoned up in more temperate climes. From Hawaii to Singapore, Indonesia to Thailand, the 291 stunning colour photographs reveal technicolour border plantings against finely tended lawns, misty jungly thickets, murmuring streams and cool lily ponds (over which the Thais often built their libraries - to protect the manuscripts from white ants). A volume to inspire lush reveries. (Kirkus UK)
