    Our homes’ outdoor spaces can—and should—be as welcoming and carefully considered as our living rooms; when treated as extensions of our homes, these spaces enrich our lives immeasurably. That was the guiding principle when, under the direction of editor in chief Michelle Slatalla (whose New York Times style columns were weekly must-reads for a decade), the team behind Remodelista.com launched sister site Gardenista.com. Like Remodelista, Gardenista caters to an older, more established audience (75% of readers are over the age of 35) and is known for its sophisticated, well-edited aesthetic.

    The book contains lushly photographed tours of 12 enviable gardens; planting guides for a variety of climates and colour palettes; in-depth case studies on more than a dozen outdoor structures (from yoga studios to chicken coops); DIY projects and a guide to timeless everyday objects for the outdoors; plus advice from landscape professionals. Equal parts inspiration and expert intel, Gardenista is both a perfect starting point and an all-in-one bible.

    First published in the UK by Sutton Publishing in 1996 (and by Timber Press in the US), this Pimpernel Classic edition has been redesigned and includes new photography.

    Gertrude Jekyll was probably the most influential garden designer of the early twentieth century. In this book Judith Tankard and Martin Wood explore her life and work at the home she created for herself at Munstead Wood in Surrey, England. Taking as a basis her own photograph albums, scrapbooks and notebooks, and the recollections of contemporaries from Edith Wharton and Vita Sackville-West to William Robinson and Henry Francis du Pont, they describe not only the building and development of the house and garden but also her skills both in the arts and as a businesswoman and her collaborations with architects - pre-eminently Edwin Lutyens, but also Oliver Hill and M.H. Baillie Scott.

    In Great Gardens of London, Victoria Summerley and Hugo Rittson Thomas collaborate to unearth the most fascinating stories of plants and people inside London's most exciting gardens.


    London's gardeners are twice blessed: not only do they live in one of the world's most vibrant capitals, it is also one of the most verdant. Gardens of every imaginable style, shape and size abound on rooftops, within palaces, surrounding churches, behind walls - on every piece of dry land - even if it is floating on or lapped by the river Thames.

    In Great Gardens of London, Victoria Summerley, Hugo Rittson Thomas and Marianne Majerus collaborate to unearth the most fascinating stories of plants and people inside London's most exciting gardens. Some of the gardens are strictly private, while others are regularly open to visitors, but all can now be savoured and enjoyed along with those who know them best.

    Great Gardens of London is a captivating photographic portrait of the greatest gardens of the capital which are primarily closed to the public or rarely open their gates. It will feature gardens designed by some of the leading contemporary garden designers from across the world. Accompanying the photographs will be essays on the design and planting that explain the designers' inspiration and passion.

    Title: HOUSE AND GARDEN AT GLENMORE
    Author: ROBERTSON MICKEY
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The story of the author's home and world-class garden and her relationship with nature and the seasons, also including recipes featuring produce from the working kitchen garden.


    Twenty-five years ago, Mickey Robertson and her husband Larry made an impulsive decision to purchase a collection of historic but dilapidated Georgian farm buildings in country NSW, Australia. Thus began an unplanned, intensely emotional journey of restoration and renewal, traced in this richly illustrated book through a warmly engaging narrative and inspirational images by photographer Daniel Shipp. The natural world and the seasons are an integral part of Mickey's home and life, and she explores the links between them as she recounts the story of the creation of her home's interiors and her garden. Glenmore House exemplifies her philosophy that colour, texture, representation, sentiment, memory and emotion each play a role in creating a home. Today the rooms are filled with the stories of her family's lives, of things gathered, and of inspiration, while the colours, textures and vistas of her garden play a significant role within each room of the house. In addition to the ornamental garden that enfolds her home, Mickey has built a working, productive organic/biodynamic kitchen garden which is never dormant. In this book she also provides 30 seasonally based recipes inspired by the abundance and freshness of her home-grown produce.
