Edited by BBC garden writer and broadcaster Tony Russell, Great Gardens to Visit 2011 features information on some of the UK’s finest gardens including RBG Edinburgh, the Batsford Arboretum, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Windsor Great Park.

Commenting on the book, Russell said:  "I am particularly pleased with Great Gardens to Visit 2011 – it contains a superb selection of the finest gardens in Britain and uses stunning photography throughout.

"Given the financial difficulties at present, not only is this book extremely well priced at £12.99, it also gives readers plenty of ideas for relatively cheap but wonderful days out in 2011."

To coincide with the book’s launch, The Daily Telegraph will run a weekly feature throughout 2011 on the gardens mentioned in the book.
