John Nash was a keen plantsman. a passion he shared  which 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.  Illustartions were also produced for books - Mahoney and Dunbar had published Gardners Choice in 1937.  English Garden Flowers, for which this is likely to be a study,  illustrated by Nash, was published by Duckworth, London, in 1948.
