- THE GARDENS OF MADEIRA
by GERALD LUCKHURST
The sub-tropical island of Madeira is the horticulturalist's dream. Gerald Luckhurst takes us to thirty gardens - both historic and contemporary - around the capital Funchal, describing the flamboyance of native plants and exotic imports, like flame trees and the even more dramatic oozing dragon trees. Alongside beautiful photography, Luckhurst relates a colourful history that includes Portuguese aristocrats and British wine merchants.
