The Education of a Gardener: The Thoughtful Gardener
" The landscapes we make outlast us by many years therefore they must be dignified with thought and love."

Self-taught, and with a lifelong interest in natural landscapes, gardens, and architecture, Jinny Blom launched her landscape design practice in 2000 after 20 years as a psychologist. Today, she is one of the U.K.'s leading landscape gardeners—celebrated for her skill with plants, her spatial understanding, and an ability to create gardens that respond to the history of a site and its wider landscape. In formal walled spaces and contemporary installations, in town gardens and vast country estates, Blom pushes creative boundaries, incorporating unexpected design elements and a wide variety of styles. With hundreds of gardens worldwide to her credit, Jinny Blom is celebrated internationally for her innovative and uniquely thoughtful work. A frequent contributor to U.K. and U.S. gardening and lifestyle publications, she is author of the bestselling The Thoughtful Gardener, An intelligent approach to garden design. Blom has designed five award winning gardens for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, winning Gold in 2007.
