Elvin McDonald's love of gardening began at age three, and by age fourteen,
he was a published author and founder of The Gesneriad Society, formerly known
as the American Gloxinia and Gesneriad Society. A resident of West De Moines,
Iowa, McDonald fell in love with Savannah's gardens while on assignment for
Traditional Home magazine.
His passion for gardening has translated into a career. In addition to
publishing numerous gardening books, including Better Homes and Gardens:
Successful Rose Gardening and Old-Fashioned Roses, McDonald has also
worked as senior editor for Traditional Home and as gardens and outdoor
living deputy editor for Better Homes and Gardens magazine. He was also
the primary consultant for the Emmy-winning television series Gardens of the
World with Audrey Hepburn.
Small Gardens of Savannah and Thereabouts features
full-color photographs from over thirty gardens. Readers are led on a personal
tour of each garden and given tips and techniques on how they can improve their
own gardens. Also included are a planting schedule and recommendations on
specific plant varieties for Southern gardens.
Elvin McDonald received the Chicago Horticultural Society's Hutchinson Medal
for lifetime achievement and was accepted into the Garden Writers Association
Hall of Fame after nomination by his peers. In addition to designing public and
private gardens, McDonald also tours as a lecturer and is a Smithsonian Study
