Stephen Westcott Gratton is rather well-known in the horticulture circles. He is a horticulturist, gardening expert, has authored three books the first of which is "Creating a Cottage Garden in Canada", a regular contributor to Canadian Gardening Magazine and a tv host having appeared on HGTV with Flower Power among other gardening programs.
I enjoy reading Canadian Gardening magazine and have found his articles well-informed and educational to me. As a subscriber to the online newsletter put out by Canadian Gardening, I found an article by Stephen Westcott Gratton about his favourite garden writers. While I would have loved to have simply chosen the button to "blog this", it wasn't available. I did tweet it. This is the next best thing. Blogging about his article, I guess.
Stephen's top 10 garden writers:
-E. A. Bowles (1865-1954)
-Nan Fairbrother (1913-1971)
-Margery Fish (1892-1969)
-Miles Hadfield (1903-1982)
-Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932)
-Beverley Nichols (1898-1983)
-Vita Sackville-West (1892-1962)
-Lady Anne Scott-James (1913-2009)
-Sir Sacheverell Sitwell (1897-1988)
