Describing the empire-building British of the Raj, Professor Herbert writes, ‘they took with them as part of their cultural baggage their love of gardens and their certainties about what a garden should look like’. In this pioneering history, she discusses the gardens the British created for themselves in India, whether viceroys and their wives, minor officials, soldiers or professional botanists. The result is an illustrated exploration of their lasting horticultural influence in India, and India’s influence on them.
