European Garden Books Awarded at Castle Dennenlohe

For the fourth time the “European Garden Book Award” was given out at Castle Dennenlohe in Germany.

Every year the best European books about gardens and gardening are chosen by an expert jury and presented to the public at the “European Garden Book Award” at Castle Dennenlohe. These are the winners:

The first place went to The Gardens of England: Treasures of the National Gardens Scheme by George Plumtre, published in England by Merrell Publishers and in Germany by the Callwey Verlag under the name Englands Gartenschätze. This book presents 50 of the most stunning gardens that are part of the National Garden Scheme. This initiative was founded in 1927 and has since then collected lots of donations for several good causes. The choice of gardens in this book is a mixture of well known sites and hidden gems.

The second place went to Planting: A New Perspective by Noel Kingsbury and Piet Oudolf, published in England by Timber Press and in Germany by Eugen Ulmer Verlag under the name Design trifft Natur

The third place went to the Russian book 100 растений для вашего сада by Tatjana Koisman and Sergey Karepanov. The title translates to “100 Plants for your Garden”.
