Abstract:

The Rothschild family, renowned as bankers, have had a huge impact on Western social and political history over nearly two centuries. Less well-known is their influence on the landscape, for many members of the family have been passionate and knowledgeable gardeners, skillfully creating magnificent parklands and gardens throughout England, Europe, and elsewhere. Enthusiastic and flamboyant, the Rothschilds have always been fond of showy bedding displays and elaborate.

Topiary, but they have also enjoyed producing fruit and vegetables. Baron Edmond delighted guests at his households in Paris and Boulogne by inviting them to pick fresh fruit - ripe red or black cherries, or greengage plums - straight from dwarf trees brought into the dining room! More than just a book about beautiful gardens and estates, this is a combination of glorious photographs, extraordinary anecdotes, vast fortunes, and magnificent gardens. Archival pictures of.

Many of the gardens and the characters involved accompany Miriam Rothschild's intimate, amusing look at the competitiveness and drive for perfection that has typified her family's behavior in gardening, as well as in business.
