Designing a garden : a guide to planning and planting through the seasons by Allen Paterson( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is the desire for beauty that motivates most gardeners: the gradual building up of considered scenes, large or small; the arrangement or rearrangement of plants; the consideration of foliage texture and flower colour; the conscious celebrations of the seasons that are, for most of us, as close as we shall get to artistic expression." In Designing a Garden, author Allen Paterson invites us to indulge our need for beauty and to explore the creative rewards that linger tantalizingly just beyond our back doors. A longtime gardener and teacher of gardeners, Paterson believes that coherence is the key to garden design. To that end he advises on pathways, patios, terraces, raised beds and the materials with which one can best achieve a marriage of form and content. But the essential raw materials for Paterson are clearly the plants themselves, which he likens to "living furniture." Drawing on decades of experience, he brings to life the myriad gardening options available to us, including the perennial border, annuals, trees and shrubs, flowering bulbs, roses, the vegetable garden and "the garden room." Paterson's writing has the resonance of both history and expertise, but most important, it communicates his irrepressible delight in the creative act of simply bringing plants together, an enterprise he suggests is the perfect blend of art and science

A history of the fragrant rose by Allen Paterson( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rose is the most popular and best-loved garden flower in the world. It has been held in special and sacred regard for thousands of years and has been associated with heraldry, painting, music, myth and religion across the ages. Grown for its medicinal and culinary properties as well as for perfumery, the rose in ancient times formed an integral part of carnivals, festivals and the cosmetic industry, where attar of rose became so highly prized it was more expensive than gold. From the rose gardens of Malmaison belonging to Napoleon's Empress Josephine, to the Wars of the Roses, the rose has a fascinating history. Since the few known roses of the Middle Ages, the curiosity of travellers, the patience of plantsmen and the dilligence of botanists all contributed to bring together roses from every part of the globe, crossing and developing them to produce the thousands of different varieties seen today
