Armchair Gardening: Some of the Spirit, Philosophy and Psychology of the Art of Gardening
Published in 1947, Armchair Gardening is a meditation on the sensual and spiritual aspects of gardening. Thomas Hubbard McHatton believes gardening is an art—a method of expression analogous to sculpture or dance. He carefully dissects the delicate components of a garden, explaining how one can pinpoint the intricate and harmonious tastes, sounds, and odors fl owing freely among the plants. McHatton includes a chronicle of America's interest in gardening, starting with its genesis, expanding to explain its role in universal gardening, and concluding with a written pilgrimage through some of America's most famous gardens.
