A GOOD READ

Young blood is al­ways wel­come in the hor­ti­cul­tural world and Arthur Parkinson’s youthful en­thu­si­asm is a tonic. He writes en­gag­ingly – I found The Pot­tery Gar­dener (£25; the­his­to­ry­press. co.uk) hard to put down, as he lyri­cally de­scribes his beloved hens and time with Sarah Raven. This is the story of his work tend­ing the gar­den of the Emma Bridge­wa­ter fac­tory in Stoke-on-trent. Much of the floor is con­crete, so he has cre­ated a gar­den up­wards rather than down­wards in raised beds and con­tain­ers. A treat.
