The Gardener character jug in a trial colorway modeled by Stanley J. Taylor and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, in 1990. Given that Adam was a gardener, gardening must be man's oldest profession. Millions make their living by helping to feed the rest of the world; others find it a pleasant recreation, while still others regard it as an absorbing hobby. Gardening has been highly developed since ancient times. Using irrigation techniques, the Egyptians grew vegetables, fruits and flowers. The Mesopotamians constructed private parks such as the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. However, these fellows here are more likely to be working on a smaller scale. This younger gardener deals in potted plants; perhaps using today's more scientific methods he will design and supervise the gardening for his clients, while others do the back-breaking work. A potted plant forms the handle of this jug.
