About the Book

Nathaniel Swinden was a seedsman in Brentford & Isleworth Middlesex. A short article about his gardening family appears on my blog here: http://nurserygardeners.com/?p=150. The book is a remarkable piece of marketing - he provides information on the flower and vegateble garden, with seasonal advice and designs for flower beds, but he also promotes the seeds he could supply by offering them in specific boxed sets which would fulfill specific designs.
