The Thoughtful Gardener: An intelligent approach to garden design by Jinny Blom
March 2017 | Hardback | £35.00 Published by Jacqui Small
A prolific designer, Jinny Blom embraces a wide variety of styles, from formal walled gardens to contemporary installations. What defines her work is her skill with plants and her ability to create a garden that responds to the history of the site and the wider landscape. In this book, Jinny shares her insight into the creative process she has developed while designing more than 250 gardens around the world.
For Jinny, design is more a matter of intelligence and appropriateness than imposing a particular style. As such, her approach can be applied to any garden. You can take inspiration from Jinny’s principles and apply them to your own garden, whatever the shape, size of plot or aspect, to make it work for you and for your situation, giving enormous satisfaction for years to come.
Reflecting Jinny’s highly individual character, there is plenty of wit and quirkiness alongside the expert knowledge, and it will appeal to the widest audience of garden lovers. Thoughtful and beautiful, yet practical and informative, this book marries artistry with functionality.
Jinny Blom has enjoyed a meteoric rise as a landscape and garden designer since she began her London- based practice in 2000. Jinny works on a wide range of projects, taking her across the UK, Europe, the United States and Africa. She has exhibited at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show four times, and was awarded the coveted gold medal in 2007 for her Laurent-Perrier garden. She won a silver-gilt medal at Chelsea in 2002 for her ‘Healing Garden’, created in collaboration with HRH The Prince of Wales, and in 2013 she designed a garden commissioned by HRH Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale. She has been a columnist for The Times and has appeared in a wide range of publications.
