For three years, Chris Woods traveled the world seeking out contemporary gardens and found 50 of the best. He describes them in his new book, “Gardenlust: A Botanical Tour of the World’s Best New Gardens.” With wit and humor, he describes the most arresting features in public parks in exotic locations like New Delhi and Dubai, mission-redefining botanic gardens in Chile and Australia, and the most enviable details of lavish private estates and gemlike city yards. Throughout, he reveals the fascinating people, plants and stories that make these gardens so lustworthy. Naples Botanical Garden is one of the gardens featured in the book.
