Product description

Published in 1947, Armchair Gardening is a meditation on the sensual and spiritual aspects of gardening. Thomas Hubbard McHatton believes gardening is an art--a method of expression analogous to sculpture or dance. He carefully dissects the delicate components of a garden, explaining how one can pinpoint the intricate and harmonious tastes, sounds, and odors flowing freely among the plants. McHatton includes a chronicle of America's interest in gardening, starting with its genesis, expanding to explain its role in universal gardening, and concluding with a written pilgrimage through some of America's most famous gardens.
