9780500511107: The Garden Through the Year: A Month-by-month Guide to the Favourite Plants and Flowers of the Greatest Gardener of All Time

This is not primarily a how-to manual, but rather a compendium of Graham Stuart Thomas's favourite plants for all seasons, including new discoveries and surprising juxtapositions. The volume is illustrated throughout with Thomas's paintings and drawings, plus photographs both by him - some from his own garden in Surrey - and other photographers. Each month begins with trees, then shrubs and climbers, followed by perennials and bulbs. Plant names are arranged alphabetically, although some are grouped under headings (such as viburnums and coloured leaves). The index gives easy access to individual plants, while the arrangement of chapters in the main text by month guides their choice and deployment in the garden.

Book Description:

Thomas is the dean of English gardening; he has restored and maintained many gardens, especially during his 18 years as horticultural advisor to the English National Trust. Here he offers his vast experience with proven plants that perform reliably and well.

About the Author:

Graham Stuart Thomas OBE has been awarded the Veitch Memorial Medal by the Royal Horticultural Society, plus their Gold Medal for his paintings and drawings. The Garden Writers' Guild gave him a lifetime achievement award in 1996, and the National Trust presented him with its Founder's Award in 1996.
