“…This is a must-have book for anyone interested in beautiful gardens, from those who appreciate just looking at them through to garden designers.”
“I am most impressed and the photos are glorious. A great production and a feast for the eyes.”
"...I cannot praise this book enough. This is no ordinary volume to leave neglected on a table. Read it, study it, and look at it again and again. There is much to learn from it and much to treasure….Guides the reader through the gates of gardens most of us could only dream about visiting…both the texts and the photographs ensure that we do not merely visit these places, we explore them."
“A coffee-table topper that explores the unexpected gardens of Corfu and will leave you yearning for your own island retreat.
Reading Rachel Weaving’s book on Corfu gardens in a cold British spring is a marvelously cruel experience. …her descriptions and Marianne Majerus’s images transport you instantly to lush, rocky hillsides bathed in Mediterranean sunlight, and a selection of gardens, both old and recently created…The chapter on contemporary gardens highlights some of the recent superstars of mediterranean garden design, including Alithea Johns, Jennifer Gay, and Thomas Doxiadis—many of whom use local plants and naturalistic effects from the surrounding landscape to create sustainable gardens….Weaving finishes with a wider look at the landscapes and plants of the island, including information on the beautiful wildflowers…The overall effect is that you develop a bad habit of regularly checking for flights online, in the hope that as soon as possible you will find yourself sitting under one of the beautiful pergolas she features, draped in blooming wisteria.”
