The result? The Flower Yard: Growing Flamboyant Flowers in Containers. The book is part stunning photographic ode to Parkinson’s green thumb (he trained at Kew Gardens and with Sarah Raven) and part how-to-guide on cultivating a wild world of plants in a modest dwelling. “This book is an invitation and somehow, I hope, an education on how to garden in a truly small space. It is a calling out against what is small-garden dysmorphia, where gardens with lawns, sheds, and even greenhouses are indeed called small,” he writes in the Dear Santa I tried to be good but I guess I take after my Biker Dad shirt in addition I really love this introduction.
