‘This is a clearly presented work, with accessible topic headings and plenty of good advice sprinkled with engaging personal anecdotes. The message at the book’s heart is to adopt a greener way of being and to see oneself as part of nature, not removed from it. On this point it is exceptional, distinguishing itself from many of the green gardening books written in recent years.’ The English Garden magazine
‘Conversational, interesting, and personal … it reaffirms the link between what we love to do and why we should be doing it with nature, the planet and our health in mind.’ RHS The Garden magazine
