John Nash was a keen plantsman. A passion he shared with Charles Mahoney, Edward Bawden, Geoffrey Rhoades, and Evelyn Dunbar.  This group regularly swapped cuttings with each other and cultivated their favoured plants in their gardens and recorded them in their paintings.  Illustrations were also produced for books - Mahoney and Dunbar had published Gardner’s Choice in 193.  English Garden Flowers, for which this is likely to be a study, illustrated by Nash, was published by Duckworth, London, in 1948.
