Cuttings from My Garden Notebooks
Cuttings from My Garden Notebooks brings his art and his life together in a treasure trove of sixty-three essays revealing the complete Graham Thomas. Here, he sorts out the rhododendrons, the roses and the jasmines. He tells us about the uses of pergolas, water and troughs made of tufa for alpine plants. He reminisces about the nurserymen and the famous gardeners he has known. He suggests design solutions for unusual spaces, and ideas for gardens he has made, or only dreamed about. Written with humor, common sense and a poet's grasp of the English language, it offers encouragement and guidance for those who are just beginning to garden, and a wealth of information for experienced gardeners.
