In The Thoughtful Gardener, Jinny Blom shares insight into the creative process she has developed while designing more than 250 gardens around the world. Jinny believes that garden design should lead from a house and its context. For her, design is more a matter of intelligence and appropriateness than imposing a particular style. As such, Jinny's approach, which she demonstrates in this book in the many and varied gardens she has created, can be applied to any garden in any situation. The reader can take inspiration from Jinny's principles and apply them to their own garden, whatever the shape, size of plot or aspect, to create a garden that will work for them and for their situation, giving enormous satisfaction for years to come

Exquisite book. Not only are gardens/photos wonderful, but her writing style is delightful - one of the few garden books I read completely.
