The Romantic Garden

A Guide to Creating a Beautiful and Private Garden Paradise

by Graham Rose and Paul Cox
Publication Date: 15/03/2003
However small their plot, all gardeners want to make a garden that appeals to the spirit as well as to the senses. Secluded, scented and softly planted, the romantic garden provides an increasingly welcome contrast to the world outside. Here, Graham Rose shows in detail how to create this sort of romantic retreat. There are special sections on fences and hedges to create an atmosphere of seclusion, water landscaping for refreshment and soothing sound effects, and the use of scent and colour. Illustrated with artwork and photographs, the volume also contains a comprehensive catalogue of the most romantic plants -from fragrant old-fashioned roses to tiny carpeters - with cultivation details. This handbook seeks to evoke a return to the traditional qualities of the best gardens of the past, and to provide the inspiration for making such gardens now and in the future.

Graham Rose

When Graham Rose discovered roleplaying games, he was hooked. He designed his first home-brew RPG in the 1980s and has continued tinkering with games ever since. It was whilst roleplaying that Graham decided to acquire as many of the abilities listed on his character sheet as possible.

This quest has led to a wide range of interests, from archaeology to competition fencing, a career in the fields of intelligence and law enforcement, and has also resulted in him crashing a snowmobile in the Arctic Circle, enduring serious illness in Kathmandu, coming face to face with a silverback gorilla in Rwanda, and walking Hadrian's Wall during a storm.

Graham lives in the UK with his wife, Nicola, and currently works as a cold case homicide investigator.
