French country gardening has experienced a renaissance in recent years. While the great French heritage still thrives, its traditions now provide inspiration for fresh delights and creative expression.
This book embraces the whole of France, from Normandy to the Riviera, from Picardy to the Pyrenees, revealing the full extent and exciting diversity of the modern French country garden. Little by little, the sedate country style has given way to modern conceptions and technical innovation and experimentation. Nowhere is there a happier harmony of the past, the present and the future.
