Format: Hardcover
This is a nice book - I'm not going to resell it or trade it in at my local used bookstore. But it was disappointing in this regard: it focuses almost solely on "English-style cottage-type flower gardens." There's a few gardens outside the UK, and a few gardens that are more modern in flavor, but for the most part, there's an amazing sameness to all the gardens and the images (which are gorgeous). I would have preferred other stles, other types, other genres in addition to the English style cottage gardens. Additionally, I would have liked some plan views to provide a context for the images. If I had to do it all over again, knowing then what I know now, I probably wouldn't have purchased it. I like more variety.

Format: Hardcover
Lovely photos, & a good mix of international gardens, but almost no text, & no overview of the garden plans,so no way to put the pictures into a garden context.
