The Making of The Alnwick Garden Book


The Making of the Alnwick Garden follows a 17year battle by the Duchess of Northumberland and Ian August to build the most exciting contemporary garden in Britain. The book describes the fight for sponsorship and the struggle to persuade the public that this was a garden for all, not an aristocratic fancy, and the efforts to find a garden designer who would understand the concept. Facing intense criticism from the national press, August captures the dramas and dilemmas of what, at times, seemed like an insurmountable battle.
