Product description

Review

"(She) is a bona fide horticultural celebrity."
(Wall Street Journal)

“Written with wit and insight, it sets out an approach to design that is intuitive, thoughtful and holistic – a philosophy that is clearly successful and clearly manifest in this designer’s beautifully executed gardens. It is a book that will make you think about design, about landscape and nature, and about the benefits of engaging with a garden yourself.” 
(House & Garden)

The Thoughtful Gardener, at once a lavishly illustrated coffee-table tome and a friendly hands-on primer, offers a glimpse into some of the most magical gardens in the world…
(Architectural Digest US)

"Landscaper Jinny Blom’s long-awaited book is so beautiful that you will not want to rush it. As the title suggests, there is more to this than lovely photography: the pages of The Thoughtful Gardener will stop you in your tracks and make you think about the potential of gardens, in a way that has never struck you before."  
(Gardenista)

Alas, the world has been offered a publication on garden design that is written in neither a cookbook nor a “how to” format. Rather, The Thoughtful Gardener, by Jinny Blom, is more like a treasure map. It is a window, or in some cases, a panoramic view into the thought processes that should precede all garden design. With an emphasis on historical precedent and sensitivity to the local vernacular, Jinny, most eloquently, takes the reader on an odyssey through the conception, development and execution of each creation. This coupled with her extensive working knowledge of both plant and building materials, not to mention her unbridled imagination (and sense of humor) the reader can expect to close this book enlightened, amused and inspired. A timeless, horticultural manifesto! 
(Gunner Peterson)

"A detailed and richly illustrated account of how one of the UK's leading practitioners approaches the art of garden design."
(Gardens Illustrated)

Review

"The Thoughtful Gardener is the most beautiful and stimulating and enlivening gardening book I have ever seen." 

(Adam Nicolson)
