John Lonsdale, a native of Sheffield, England, hopped the pond in 1995 and developed his garden Edgewood on a little over 1.5 acres in Exton, Pennsylvania. Here he grows several thousand hardy woodland, prairie and bulbous plants, trees and shrubs in a variety of natural settings, including a particularly large and active propagated collection of Daphne.
John is an active member of a number of horticultural groups, including the Daphne Society, Alpine Garden Society, Cyclamen Society, North American Rock Garden Society, Scottish rock Garden club, AGS Fritillaria Group, the Crocus Group, Aril Society International, the species Iris Group of North America and several internet-based discussion groups such as Alpine-L. He has contributed articles to the publications of a number of these Societies and also lectured widely about many of the plants mentioned.
John's website has over 2500 photographs of the garden and its plants. there are also pages devoted to cultivation and propagation, and a listing of surplus plants and seeds for sale or exchange.
