"Arts and Crafts gardens were unashamedly romantic, but also deceptively progressive. This book explores the politics behind the planting: the underlying issues of suffrage, spirituality and national identity behind some of the movement's finest gardens. It examines the architectural features and planting trends that defined the style in Britain, America, Europe and Scandinavia and considers the legacy of Arts and Crafts gardening as a profound and sensual philosophy, still relevant to gardeners today."--BOOK JACKET.
