Nelson, Charles E.

An Irishman's cuttings. Tales of Irish gardens and gardeners, plants and plant hunters. 2009. col. photogr. illus. IX, 214 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
The cuttings in this book are amusing, interesting tales of gardeners, plant hunters, plants discovered near home or in faraway places, sometimes after great hardships. There are stories of eccentric, opinionated Irish gardeners and the plants they cherished, propagated and passed on. Among the inimitable plantsmen were the Master of Belgrove obliterating plants with his umbrella, an elegant lady swapping parasol covers for variegated Funkia, another plant hunter was hunting for houseleeks in the Canaries. Each essay is an Irishman's cutting in another way, having been first published in The Irish Garden magazine, for which the author has written.
