The Pottery Gardener

The Pottery Gardener

"For gardeners, hen fanciers, and Emma fans."

Our favorite pottery in Stoke-on-Trent already has a strong pull for us—Emma Bridgewater’s lovingly hand-formed English creamware. But, within its walls is a vibrant garden “bursting with nectar-rich, jazzy-toned flowers and hen houses of rare-breed chickens.” A magical place we long to see!

In his book, The Pottery Gardener: Flowers and Hens at the Emma Bridgewater Factory, gardener Arthur Parkinson gives us a tour of his lush retreat in the midst of the design rooms and workshops of Emma Bridgewater’s pottery.

“Arthur is unusual, with an idiosyncratic style—both botanical and literary—all of his own,” Emma Bridgewater writes in the foreword. And it’s in this style Arthur brings us a brief history of the factory garden, seasonal tips on container planting, plant profiles, and helpful guides to keeping fowl and flower-arranging. The Pottery Gardener is sure to delight gardeners, hen fanciers, and Emma Bridgewater fans alike!

The Pottery Gardener: Flowers and Hens at the Emma Bridgewater Factory by Arthur Parkinson; Hardcover, 224 pages.
