The Content Of The Article:
Karine von Rumohr - granddaughter of the founder of the perennial nursery Gräfin von Zeppelin - introduces 18 women whose life is the garden, for example the now 87-year-old English gardener Beth Chatto, who is famous for her gravel gardens. Gudrun Rix runs a garden of roses and rarities and Elisabeth Freifrau von Reden uses her historic castle park as a setting for modern sculptures. Owners also give their readers insight into private realms, for example a natural garden in which 15 endangered plant species grow, or a modern cottage garden that exudes a romantic charm.
