This year Mille Fleurs was featured in this newly published hardback which introduced some of the most iconic , popular and unusual country gardens in Britain.
This year Guernsey hosted the national Britain in Bloom awards evening, welcoming over 400 finalists from all over Britain - the first time it had been held outside the UK.
