Description

Product Description

“Vision, tenacity, and a perfectionist’s eye are the qualities that shine out from this account of a paradise garden created by two of America’s foremost stylists.” —Anna Pavord, author of The Curious Gardener and Landskipping

One of the most spectacular private gardens in America, Hortulus Farm is the masterpiece of Renny Reynolds and Jack Staub, renowned experts in the fields of design, gardening, and entertaining. It is beautifully captured in Chasing Eden, a lavishly illustrated roadmap to creating a personal Eden.

Hortulus Farm is a not only a model of classical tenets, but also a showcase of how traditions can be successfully broken. Gardeners will discover information on specific design principles, from vistas and allées to hardscaping and water features. They will also learn how to adapt these principles to less-than-optimal settings without sacrificing a site’s sense of place. Both aspirational and practical, Chasing Eden will inspire home gardeners to create their own earthly paradise.

Review

“Jack Staub and Renny Reynolds embody all the traits that one sees in the very best gardeners—fearlessness, passion, and an indefatigable desire to create a very personal version of paradise. Hortulus Farm is set squarely and joyfully at the intersection of man and nature.” — James Brayton Hall, president and CEO, The Garden Conservancy
 
“Vision, tenacity, and a perfectionist’s eye are the qualities that shine out from this account of a paradise garden created by one of America’s foremost stylists. This is a thrilling and inspiring story.” — Anna Pavord, author of The Curious Gardener and Landskipping
 
“A fabulous adventure in armchair gardening—all of the pleasure and none of the backache!” — Jinny Blom, landscape gardener and author of The Thoughtful Gardener
 
“Jack and Renny have set the stage for others to be inspired by their design excellence and story. Chasing Eden is not only a beautiful book; it will serve as a template for generations of future gardeners to create their very own Garden of Eden.” — Paul B. Redman, president and CEO, Longwood Gardens

“Staub and Reynolds provide gardening inspiration, entertaining reading, and horticultural education in a title that a wide range of hobbyists, garden historians, and design professionals should enjoy.” — Library Journal

“A rich and thought-provoking exploration of the why and how of garden making that will interest anyone whose spirits soar with a good garden visit.” — The Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries

“The book’s advice is generous, and it’s authors put forth that it is meant for gardeners of any ability and gardens of any size.” —Horticulture

There are actually three books between these covers. The first and most obvious is a coffee table worthy collection of images that testify to the skills of the photographer and printer; one is eager to visit the physical reality. The second is a how-to manual. Few will have the underlying landscape, financial and temporal resources that created Hortulus Farm, but there are good practical and aesthetic tips that should scale. The authors’ personal tastes and experience percolates through the prose informing the reader which rules can be bent and which ignored at some peril. The third book might best be described as a delightfully told love story of two men and a hundred acres of Pennsylvania over four decades. This is the narrative that wraps the images and carries the reader through the gardens.

Fantastic Gardening book!
Reviewed in the United States on January 11, 2020
I love gardening books and probably have 200+ and this is definitely one of the best! Most of the time I only read part of the book with my interest lying in the pictures, but not with this book.

What a lovely book. What a lovely story. The Hortulus Farm is obviously (from the photos) a simply beautiful 100 acres. This is the tale of two people discovering it "in the rough" over 40 years ago -- and then they applied all of their creative skills and gardening intelligence (and lots of funds) to transform it into one of America''s garden jewels. Beyond the story, there is a ton of practical gardening knowledge and advice shared with the readers of this inspiring book. I loved reading it.
