Augustus Jenkins Farmer

Augustus Jenkins Farmer’s vision for reflective gardening guided gardeners, craftsmen, volunteers, and scientists to create two lauded public botanical gardens as well as art museums, city parks, and private enclaves. His connoisseurs’ nursery promoted the renaissance of the crinum lily, a forgotten plant of early American gardens. He’s listed as one of Garden & Gun’s most interesting people and is regularly featured in Southern Living. While his focus is on subtropical gardening in the South, he’s written and lectured internationally.
