Like his contemporary Gertrude Jekyll, William Robinson made enormous contributions to the world of gardening. More than any other gardener, he was responsible for sweeping out the rigid Victorian style and ushering in a more relaxed look that used native plants. Here, Richard Bisgrove explores Robinsons design principles and his transformative role in English gardening. Robinsons groundbreaking ideas are displayed in numerous illustrations, including photographs of Robinsonian gardens at Gravetye Manor and elsewhere and engravings from his classic books.
