The Jewel Box Garden
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could describe your garden as a jewel box full of beautiful plant treasures? In this sequel to the huge bestseller Shocking Beauty, garden guru Thomas Hobbs shows you how.

The Jewel Box Garden is a luscious, full-colour book that features 160 startling photos by renowned garden photographer David McDonald. In 12 chapters with titles such as “Gilding the Lily” and “Thinking Like a Plant,” Hobbs explains his philosophy on gardening and life. In his own provocative way, he encourages people to tap into their creativity and build oases of peace in their hurried lives.

Thomas Hobbs is an internationally known expert on garden design. He runs Southlands Nursery in Vancouver, and his private garden has featured in many prominent magazines and on Martha Stewart Living. His first book was the bestselling Shocking Beauty. David McDonald has photographed gardens for numerous magazines.
