The Garden Through the Year
It is not likely that anyone has restored and maintained as many gardens as has Graham Stuart Thomas. And what gardens they are: at the castles, such as Powis, Scotney, and Sizergh; the parks, such as Sheffield, Tatton, and Stourhead; and at much-visited gems such as Hidcote Manor, Sissinghurst, and Snowshill. These are a few of the hundred or so garden properties in care of the National Trust for which he was responsible during 18 years as its horticultural advisor.
In The Garden Through the Year Thomas offers not only his vast
experience on behalf of the National Trust with plants that performed reliably and well, but also the discerning eye of one who filled his own small garden with the best of everything.
