This group regularly swapped cuttings with each other and cultivated their favoured plants in their gardens and recorded them in paintings and drawings. Illustrations were produced for books - Mahoney and Dunbar had published Gardeners' 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.
