The big skies and the extraordinary light of East Anglia make it unlike anywhere else in Britain, and offer the most amazing natural conditions in which to create gardens. The twenty-two gardens selected for Secret Gardens of East Angliacelebrate the culture, beauty and diversity of the counties of Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex, and all deserve to be better known. Introduced by eminent East Anglian plantswoman Beth Chatto, the gardens appearing on these pages are brought tolife by the award-winning author and photographer team of Barbara Segall and Marcus Harpur. From each garden we can learn about the creator's style, their talent for exploiting the genius loci, and the specific challenges and rewards they have encountered.
