The Emma Bridgewater factory is a thriving visitor attraction and a mecca for lovers of its iconic pottery; but tucked within is a walled garden bursting with nectar-rich, jazzy-toned flowers and hen houses of rare-breed chickens. In this beautiful book, the site's gardener, florist and poultry keeper Arthur Parkinson descriptively and visually shares his stunning work. With 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.

I love this book - its confidence with colour, its passion, its knowledge of the very best plants, and the fanciest breeds of poultry all married together with sumptuous photographs. That Arthur has managed to do this in an inner city, turning a bleak factory yard into a most exotic, duchess-worthy garden makes it the most inspiring garden book I have seen in years. -- SARAH RAVEN
