Walnut Hill Book Giveaway

Walnut Hill Book Giveaway
Spread the love

Anyone who’s created a garden over decades and come to love every inch of it understands the origins of this book, the story of a garden. It’s also the story of a family and their collaboration with world-renowned plantsman Kurt Bluemel in transforming two acres near Baltimore into a horticultural masterpiece.

Passionate gardeners A.C. and Penney Hubbard have seen their garden praised and featured in the media and on national and regional garden tours.

And now they’ve collaborated with garden writer Kathy Hudson and award-winning photographer Roger Foley to create  On Walnut Hill, a gorgeous book about the garden.

Plus, Sunspangledgardens’s own Allen Bush wrote the foreward and it’s as lovely as the garden itself (and available online). Allen wrote this tribute to Kurt Bluemel soon after his death in 2014.


Just leave a comment here before end of business Friday November 13 and a winner will be chosen at random.
