garden tales from a Brit at home and abroad

Plant Hunting in Kashmir

soiled_and_seeded_issue_09I am delighted this month to have co-authored an article in Soiled and Seededa splendid on-line garden magazine that aims to provide “a rich and eclectic source of ideas, learned practices, history and heritage… to dig deep to offer a refreshing and engaging take on garden culture.”

My co-author is Saima Iqbal, a conservation architect working for INTACH in Kashmir, and in the brief article we explain plans to establish authentic planting patterns at the Mughal gardens in Kashmir.

Please do go and take a look.

    What an interesting piece and an excellent magazine. Your photography is exquisite. Are there likely to be examples of the required species plants still surviving in India from which to propagate?

    A great magazine! and your article as well. Too bad there are no original plans left but identifying the plant species used at the time through painting, writings and so on, it is the way to go in such cases. Such exquisite miniature paintings!
