The Garden at Brandy Mount House
The Garden at Brandy Mount House, Michael Baron
Tucked away in rural Hampshire is a garden of captivating beauty and a fine horticultural pedigree. Michael Baron, its owner and one of the AGS’s longest-serving members, developed Brandy Mount over several decades with his late wife, Caryl.
In this beautiful new book, Michael takes us on a tour of Brandy Mount to uncover its history, its many secrets and delights. He is a skilled plantsman, and has created year-round interest in his garden, especially in spring with an abundance of alpines and bulbous plants providing pools of colour. His collection of snowdrops is one of the finest in the UK. There are also many perennials, shrubs, roses, trees and climbers.
Michael shares with us his experiences in growing such a wide range of plants and his recollections of meetings with fellow enthusiasts and well-known names in the horticultural world. This lavishly illustrated book has a foreword by Roy Lancaster.
