Published in association with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, The Quest for Shakespeare s Garden traces the origins of garden history and the Elizabethan garden, as well as telling the story of the Bard s own garden in Stratford-upon-Avon. Beautifully presented, the text is accompanied by quotations from Shakespeare s works and lush illustrations of his gardens, past and present, plucked from a multitude of sources including embroidered Elizabethan clothing and Victorian gardening books, as well as various gardens around the world.

Roy Strong s detailed account is inspired by Shakespeare s works and supplemented by Francis Bacon s 1625 essay Of Gardens" which provides Elizabethan-era advice to garden enthusiasts on such topics as topiary, seasonal gardens, scents, aviaries, and more.
