In this divine visual diary of life in the garden, The Land Gardeners share their beliefs on the importance of soil health, introduce you to their favourite blooms and inspire you to create your own cutting garden with expert knowledge on how to grow and what to gather by season.

This is the story of The Land Gardeners, creators of productive gardens and stunning bundles of cut flowers. Based in the original walled garden at Wardington Manor, The Land Gardeners have revived the tradition of working with the land to produce abundant, seasonal flowers for clients’ use in decoration, design and events. But for all the frivolous, bucolic beauty of the flowers, it is the productivity and health of the soil that truly underpins The Land Gardeners’ philosophy. The book explores lively soil, the joy (and, arguably, necessity) of gathering from our gardens, and the imperative that we care for our soils and live among healthy, vital gardens.

Chapters include:
The Land Gardeners – how Bridget Elworthy (New Zealand) and Henrietta Courtauld (England) created The Land Gardeners in 2012, their background in growing and designing, their philosophy.

A Floral History – how it all began in the walled garden at Wardington Manor, Oxfordshire, England.

Creation of a Cutting Garden – the fundamental importance of soil health. The life in the soil: how we improve it, how we feed it, how we make compost. The importance of organic and biodynamic growing.

The Flower Room – gathering, preparing, arranging and selling.

A Year of Flowers – growing throughout the year: spring (narcissi, tulips, hesperis); summer (roses, peonies, delphiniums, scabious, ammi); autumn (cosmos, dahlias, gladiolus); winter (bulbs, aconites, snowdrops, berries, hips).

Your Cut-Flower Garden – creating cut-flower borders; planting and growing; feeding the soil; growing undercover; tools; staking and supports.

Growing Cut Flowers – The Land Gardeners’ favourite flowers: roses, peonies, dahlias, bulbs, annuals, perennials, foliage, shrubs and trees.

Resources – books; websites for information on cutting gardens; suppliers of plants; seed companies; tools and equipment.
