Perennial garden plants, or, The modern florilegium : a concise account of herbaceous plants, including bulbs, for general garden use by Graham Stuart Thomas( Book )

30 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hailed as a classic from its first publication, Perennial Garden Plants is one of the most comprehensive and detailed surveys ever undertaken for gardeners." "Over two thousand species - including ferns, ornamental grasses and most of the larger bulbs and tubers - are described, together with a greater number of hybrids and cultivars. Practical information is given on planting, seasonal flowering, colour, propagation and cultivation as well as on the origins of plants. In addition Graham Stuart Thomas covers a wealth of related subjects, including display, shade and moisture, hardiness, pests and diseases, and makes invaluable suggestions for specific conditions. It remains the standard work of reference for botanists, nurserymen and gardeners both professional and amateur."--BOOK JACKET
The Graham Stuart Thomas rose book by Graham Stuart Thomas( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nearly forty years ago The Old Shrub Roses (1955) brought to public attention the favorite roses of the early nineteenth century, the intensely scented Damasks, the rich and sombre Gallicas, the Albas with their unique combination of elegance and thriftiness - all ancient races rediscovered with the help of nurserymen and aficionados in the United States. Over the following ten years Graham Thomas did the same for other neglected groups. Shrub Roses of Today (1962) identified the species and hybrids from Japan and North America, from English and Scottish hedgerows and from the mountains of China, full of virtues then unrecognized. It also described the roses of the late Victorian and Edwardian eras, the Chinas and hybrid Musks redolent of lace-encrusted tea gowns and weekend house parties of the Golden Age. To complete the picture and indicate alternatives to the garish and formless Floribundas, Climbing Roses Old and New (1965) considered ramblers and climbers of more grace and subtlety like 'Adelaide d'Orleans', ideal for a tall archway, or 'Desprez a fleur jaune' now more than 150 years old but still incomparable in covering a large wall with silky blooms and filling the garden with scent twice a year." "During the intervening years there have been 22 editions and reprints of these classics, but Christopher Lloyd noted one practical shortcoming: "It is no use having just one of his rose volumes, you must have all three ... and the trio must not be scattered in different parts of the house." The Graham Stuart Thomas Rose Book solves this problem by bringing the trilogy together, substantially revised and updated. New material has been added, practical advice is included on planting, general cultivation, pruning, and display, and new photographs complement favorite illustrations from such master hands as Redoute and Graham Thomas himself."--Jacket

"It is not likely that anyone has restored and maintained as many gardens as has Graham Stuart Thomas, at castles such as Powis, Scotney, and Sizergh; at parks such as Sheffield, Tatton, and Stourhead; and at much-visited gems such as Hidcote Manor, Sissinghurst, and Snowshill. In The Garden Through the Year Thomas offers not only his vast experience as horticultural advisor to the National Trust for these great gardens, but also the discerning eye of one who filled his own small garden with the best of everything."--Jacket

Wood and garden : notes and thoughts, practical and critical, of a working amateur by Gertrude Jekyll( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932) was one of the most influential garden designers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Skilled as a painter and in many forms of handicrafts, she found her metier in the combination of her artistic skills with considerable botanical knowledge. Having been collecting and breeding plants, including Mediterranean natives, since the 1860s, she began writing for William Robinson's magazine, The Garden, in 1881, and together they are regarded as transforming English horticultural method and design: Jekyll herself received over 400 design commissions in Britain, and her few surviving gardens are treasured today. Like Robinson's, her designs were informal and more natural in style than earlier Victorian fashions. In this, the first of fourteen books, published in 1899, she stresses the importance of being inspired by nature, and sums up her philosophy of gardening: 'planting ground is painting a landscape with living things'

We made a garden by Margery Fish( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1937, Margery Fish and her husband Walter decided to transform an acre of wilderness in Somerset into a stunning cottage garden. The beautiful and timeless We Made a Garden recounts the trials and tribulations, successes and failures, of her venture with ease and humor—from choosing the most suitable hyssop for the terraced garden to battling with her husband on the best approach. It has been hailed as everything from a blueprint for the creation of a modern cottage garden to a feminist manifesto. Fish’s good sense, practical knowledge, and imaginative ideas will inspire gardeners everywhere

"Over two hundred plants are discussed, most of them illustrated with Thomas's own photographs or those of his friends. The introduction provides us with a background to Thomas's career among plants and in gardens that makes his choice of favorite plants so useful and interesting to other gardeners. There is also a chapter on his other great love: choral music, especially settings of Housman's poems, excerpts of which are selected by Thomas as epigraphs to his chapters on plants."--Jacket
