Contemporary Designers' Own Gardens Reviews

The book's author Barbara Baker, a British writer described as a 'keen' gardener, turns out to be an intrepid researcher, curious and tireless. Not only did she carefully choose the designers who appear in her book, she also traveled to 12 different countries to meet them and tour their gardens. -- Jeanne Rostaing Gardenista Blog, Vol. 7, Issue 94; October 23, 2013 ...I could spend hours inside the covers of this book. San Diego Home/Garden, February 2014
