The Pottery Gardener: Flowers and Hens at the Emma Bridgewater Factory [9780750992411]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke-on-Trent is a mecca for lovers of its iconic pottery; but tucked within is a walled garden bursting with nectar-rich, jazzy-toned flowers and rare-breed chickens.

This is where Arthur Parkinson - gardener, florist and poultry keeper - used to work his magic.

Inspired by his friend, gardener and florist Sarah Raven, and childhood hen-keeping pen pal the late Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, Parkinson's domain was one of resplendent flowers, platoon feather-legged hens, handwritten blackboards, flower arranging and wasteland foliage foraging - all carried out in one of the most unlikely places a garden could happen to exist: a working pottery.

AUTHOR: Arthur Parkinson trained at the Royal Botanical Gardens of Kew, before working for Sarah Raven at Perch Hill, East Sussex. He is now head gardener at the Emma Bridgewater Factory garden and has written for numerous special interest magazines and newsletters. His garden has been featured in The Guardian, Garden News, Gardenista and Staffordshire Life. He also gives talks at Perch Hill.
