Frank Cabot, creator of two great gardens - Les Quatre Vents in Quebec, and Stonecrop Gardens in New York - died recently. His book "The Greater Perfection: The Story of the Gardens at Les Quatre Vents" won much acclaim. Does the Hort library have a copy, I wonder?

Cabot co-founded the Garden Conservancy to help preserve excellent gardens in North America. As we've enjoyed hearing Barry Parker's stories of visits to great Welsh gardens, it's interesting to note that Cabot helped preserved the gardens at Aberglasney. Read a recent blog entry from Barry about Aberglasney and the Cabot's role there.

  8. Q345 provides better performance at low temperatures and provides better steel energy. Brushing is used to deburr and take away floor defects from sheet metallic elements. The floor sample created is a uniform parallel grain resulting from the comb transferring in opposition to the metallic floor in one course. Because bends will stretch materials, options corresponding to holes, cut-outs, inserted hardware must be situated well sufficient away from bends to prevent distortion of the outlet. To help with this rule, keep in mind “4T” which Ceramic Heater suggests situated options four occasions the fabric thickness away from any bends. The unused sheet can then be used for an additional project, while the shavings produced in machining, must be discarded and recycled.
