This book contains Thomas. H. Mawson's 1912 gardening manual; "The art & craft of garden making". This volume constitutes the definitive guide to gardening, and includes information and tips on a vast range of subjects.

Thomas Hayton Mawson (1861 - 1933), was a British garden designer, landscape architect, and town-planner. Many vintage texts such as this - particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before - are increasingly hard to come by and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
