Dundurn Fall 2012

One Hundred Years of People, Plans, and Plants by Edward Butts & Karl Stensson 280 pages, 10.25 x8.25 150 b&w illustrations, 50 colour illustrations, bibliography, index hardcover $50.00, £33.00 9781459705647 pdf $50.00, £33.00 9781459705654 epub $50.00, £33.00 9781459705661

BUSINESS & ECONOMICS / Corporate & Business History

A charming tale of history, creativity, natural inspiration, and a love of gardening. In 1913, Howard Dunington-Grubb and his wife, Lorrie, bought a small plot of land near Sheridan, Ontario, for the cultivation of ornamental plants. Local farmers thought they were crazy. But Howard and Lorrie, landscape architects recently arrived from England, were visionaries who dreamed of creating magnificent gardens in the colonial wasteland. Realizing that Canada had no nurseries that produced the plants they needed, they started one of their own. To manage it they hired Herman Stensson, an expert nurseryman whose references included one from the crown prince of Denmark. The chronicles of the Dunington-Grubbs and the Stensson family form the basis for the incredible history of Sheridan Nurseries, enhanced by the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the many people who helped turn a dream into success. This Canadian saga reaches from the monuments of Toronto's University Avenue and Niagara's Oakes Garden Theatre to hundreds of parks and estates, and perhaps even your own backyard. Edward Butts is the author of numerous books, including Murder, Simon Girty, and The Desperate Ones, which was nominated for the Arthur Ellis Award. He lives in Guelph, Ontario. Karl Stensson is president of Sheridan Nurseries and has been involved in the business for 40 years. He is an honorary life member of Landscape Ontario and is one of only four to hold the President's Ring for the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association.
