The Flower Yard – Arthur Parkinson
Arthur Parkinson’s garden in Nottingham is a town garden which despite its diminutive size is a flower-filled jungle which stands defiantly against urbanisation. It is a garden that is made almost entirely from plants in pots and with the model of what he has achieved in his own space he shows his reader how they too can create lush displays of plants.
He provides ideas for seasonal specific displays and also introduces flower types – tulips, sweet peas, poppies and dahlias – and tells you how to get the best out of these plants when they are planted in pots. Alongside all of this are accounts of his garden and his collection of bantams. He also provides ideas for picking the flowers that you have grown in pots and displaying them beautifully.
What makes the book stand out is the wealth of beautiful photography that Arthur has taken himself.
