From the Garden Club of America
Through his many books, podcasts, magazine and newspaper articles, and lectures, Thomas Christopher has elevated the art of garden writing, giving readers a deeper understanding of the natural world. With a touch of humor in clear and crisp prose, he captures the attention of his readers. From his first book, In Search of Lost Roses, to the award-winning Garden Revolution: How our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change, to his most recent book, Nature into Art: The Gardens of Wave Hill, he has instructed thousands of gardeners.
His writing explores a wide range of topics—heirloom chickens, tropical plants, xeriscaping, making hard cider, and slow-growing fescues—expanding our understanding of the many facets of sustainable gardening. He reaches a wide audience with his syndicated column, “Be a Better Gardener.” Thomas Christopher’s work expresses the joy we feel in nature, helping us become better gardeners and more conscientious ecological stewards.
