The flower yard : growing flamboyant flowers in containers

Parkinson, Arthur2021
Books, Manuscripts
Arthur Parkinson's town garden is like a path of pots, a tiny, exposed stage on bricks. Despite its small size, a flower-filled jungle in Venetian tones is grown here each year, in defiance of urbanisation. The plants act like drapes, closing gently as their growth engulfs the front door, from either side of the path, to the buzz of precious bees. This is gardening done entirely in pots, yet on a grand scale that will inspire anyone who wants their doorstep or patio to be a glamorous and lively canvas that nurtures them visually and mentally. With his bantam hens at his feet, Arthur shares his life, knowledge, flair, and influences for planting creatively, all of which combine to create a space that's rich in ever-changing colour and life.
