Discuss A Gentle Plea for Chaos with the Garden Book Club


For our next Garden Book Club selection, we will be reading: A Gentle Plea for Chaos by Mirabel Osler.

"In this book the author describes the way her garden evolved and how, without meaning to do so, she let it take over her life. She suggests moving away from planning, regimentation and gardening with the mentality of a stamp-collector. Frequently funny and always stimulating, she writes of the alchemy of gardens, of the 19th-century plant-collectors and plant illustrators and of the gardening philosophers, all fertilizing great thoughts along with their hollyhocks. She won the 1988 Sinclair Consumer Press Garden Writer of the Year Award."

Our Winter 2021 club meeting will be on Thursday, February 25 from 6:30-8pm ET via Zoom.

Please RSVP to washingtongardenermagazine (at) gmail.com to have the Zoom link sent to you. 

The Washington Gardener Magazine's Garden Book Club is free and open to all. We meet quarterly on a weekday evening usually near a metro-accessible location in the DC-area (when COVID is not a factor). We will announce the details of each upcoming meeting about two months in advance. Please check back on this blog for schedule updates and announcements.
