With seasonal tips on container planting, plant profiles and helpful guides to keeping fowl and flower-arranging, The Pottery Gardener is sure to delight gardeners, hen fanciers and Emma Bridgewater fans alike.

Review quote

I cannot describe how much I love this charming book: its ravishing photographs of flowers and chickens and bees transport you straight into the heart of Arthur's garden ... Arthur's love of living things is completely infectious and makes you want to go outside now to see what you can do in your own garden to make the world a lovelier place ... -- JOANNA LUMLEY I love this book - its confidence with colour, its passion, its knowledge of the very best plants, and the fanciest breeds of poultry all married together with sumptuous photographs. That Arthur has managed to do this in an inner city, turning a bleak factory yard into a most exotic, duchess-worthy garden makes it the most inspiring garden book I have seen in years. -- SARAH RAVEN
