This behind-the-scenes exploration looks at the history of Claude Monet's garden at Giverny in France, and links the world of Monet the artist with Monet the gardener. Four chapters trace the garden through the different seasons of the year, paying special attention to the atmosphere and light that so preoccupied Monet and became the focus of his life as a painter. Throughout, the work done by Giverny's present-day gardeners is analysed to reveal the practical techniques of maintaining the most-visited garden in the world.
