(London, Conran Octopus, 1998)
A secret garden is a magical place – a quiet haven where we can take refuge from a hostile world, rediscover the thrills of childhood, or hide ourselves away for intimate encounters. In this unique book, novelist and garden writer Jennifer Potter invites you into the enchanted world of hidden retreats.
Engaging and resonant, and with a perfect marriage between word and image, Secret Gardens will inspire you to discover your own private vision of paradise – as well as providing the expertise needed to turn that vision into reality.
‘Stunning photographs, original design and the best writing come together in one title.’
‘Perhaps because she is a novelist, she seems particularly good at finding the human stories that sanctify a place.’
