This book takes a detailed look at the design of some famous English perennial borders, at places such as Hidcote and Sissinghurst. It includes selected layouts and lots of absolutely gorgeous pictures. The text discusses helpful garden design and maintenance issues. Naturally, the book is mostly about gardening on a grand scale and budget with ancient British castles as a backdrop, but backyard gardeners from anywhere can find inspiration in this book.
