The Flower Yard: A Year of Growing a Cottage Garden in Containers [9780857839176]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

You may have no more than a few feet of space, and room for only a few large containers, but what exciting and fabulous pots these can be.

Arthur Parkinson has no flowerbeds, no lawn, no shed and no greenhouse, but has created a lush, flamboyant oasis that throughout the year is an ever-changing floral tapestry of sparkling seed heads, clutching tendrils, arching fronds and flowering stems.

Cultivating a cottage-garden space, however small, creates an island against the blight of city life. Flowers provide a beautry that cannot be bought, rewarding us visually and sensually, nurturing our senses and souls. There are real environmental benefits too. Views of dustbins, cars, neighbours' antics and the sound of traffic can, quite literally, be grown over by a richly coloured, bee-filled, living Eden.

'One day soon, I bet that young fella will be the next Monty Don or Alan Titchmarsh.' - Prue Leith


AUTHOR: Arthur Parkinson trained at Kew Gardens and after graduating went to work for Sarah Raven at her farm in East Sussex. He created an urban cut flower garden at the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke-on-Trent, which received great acclaim. In spring 2018, Arthur was named as one of the UK's young gardening stars by Architectural Digest and has since been featured alongside his photography in Gardens Illustrated, The English Garden, Gardenista, the Guardian and the Financial Times. Arthur writes for the Telegraph, and has appeared on BBC 2's Gardeners' World. Find him on Instagram: @arthurparkinson_
