Gardening is not only about plants; it is also about lifestyles, money, and class. Among the rich, gardens are symbols of social and economic success; among the poor, they are an aid to survival. Most historians have concentrated on the development of garden styles and fashions, but the whole story cannot be told without reference to social and economic conditions. Charles Quest-Ritson sets out to put gardening in its context. He shows how gardens have been altered through the generations in direct response to changes in English society itself, and he explains the social and Wnancial reasons why gardening evolved as it did.Chapter by chapter, from 1500 to the present day, he asks what owners sought from their gardens. Why did people garden? What did they get out of it? Were gardens for food, flowers, or recreation? What was fashionable, and why? What was the impact of science and technological innovation? How were plants acquired, propogated, and distributed? Who were the gardening experts? What did it all cost? What were gardens for?Accompanied by beautiful four-color illustrations throughout, Quest-Ritson's engaging narrative is an essential guide for anyone interested in the history of gardens and how they matched the changing needs and inspiration of garden owners, rich and poor.

At least since the seventeenth century, most of the English population have been unable to stop making, improving and dreaming of gardens. Yet in all the thousands of books about them, this is the first to address seriously the question of how much gardens and gardening have cost, and to work out the place of gardens in the economic, as well as the horticultural, life of the nation. It is a new kind of gardening history. Beginning with the Restoration of Charles II in 1660, Roderick Floud describes the role of the monarchy and central and local government in creating gardens, as well as that of the (generally aristocratic or plutocratic) builders of the great gardens of Stuart, Georgian and Victorian England. He considers the designers of these gardens as both artists and businessmen - often earning enormous sums by modern standards, matched by the nurserymen and plant collectors who supplied their plants. He uncovers the lives and rewards of working gardeners, the domestic gardens that came with the growth of suburbs and the impact of gardening on technical developments from man-made lakes to central heating. AN ECONOMIC HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH GARDEN shows the extraordinary commitment of money as well as time that the English have made to gardens and gardening over three and a half centuries. It reveals the connections of our gardens to the re-establishment of the English monarchy, the national debt, transport during the Industrial Revolution, the new industries of steam, glass and iron, and the built environment that is now all around us. It is a fresh perspective on the history of England and will open the eyes of gardeners - and garden visitors - to an unexpected dimension of what they do.

Gardening writer Ursula Buchan has combined forces with garden photographer Andrew Lawson to explore the English garden and capture its richness and diversity. Focusing on gardens that are open to visitors, she explains the historical trends and the work of garden makers of the past that have shaped the English gardens we see today. With a wealth of outstanding examples, illustrated with 350 photographs, she describes many garden styles – formality, the landscape tradition, the Arts and Crafts style, the cottage garden and recent phenomena such as New Naturalism. Color, water, ornament and foreign influences are among the themes she considers, as well as such defining characteristics as the very English urge to grow flowers and the nation's love of roses.

Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,0, Dresden Technical University, course: Englishness, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In no other country in the world are more gardens open to the general public than in England. There is both a huge variety of styles and a big selection of plants. The list of international wellknown gardens is long. Gardens like Sissinghurst and Stourhead show the special character and greatness of the English Garden; however, each garden has its own flair and expresses the sometimes quite eccentric personality of the owner or creator. Besides, in England a person who renders gardening a great service gains honour and fame. For many gardening is more a prestigious rather than plainly a leisure activity. The art of the garden plays an important role in English society in general. The garden authority with the most influence is the “Royal Horticultural Society”, which has nearly 250,000 members. The garden festivals they arrange are popular social events. Moreover, the National Trust is a famous and very important institution concerning conservation work. The full name stands for the principles of this charity: “The National Trust for Places of Historic Interest and Natural Beauty”. One aim of their work is to care for over 230 gardens in Great Britain. Apart from this, Britain has a very favourable climate. Frost-free zones for tropical plants as well as cold and windy weather can be found in only one county - e.g. in Cornwall. That makes it possible to get so different impressions of a landscape in a small part of the country and the climate meets the requirements for the 120,000 different species of plants growing in British gardens. The vividness of the English garden history in the present art of garden is remarkable. Many ideas were taken over from former garden styles like planting lavender, rosemary and ivy which were all brought to England by the Romans and can be find in all gardens today. Maybe the typical English garden like the continental people might see it is the English Landscaped Garden, which is the English contribution to the garden history.The recent head gardener of the Trelissick Gardens (National Trust), Barry Champion, may answer the question why the English people of all nations are famous for their love of gardens.He thinks that there is a difference in the art of gardening for example between the Germans and the English.
