After reading this book I will never again be ashamed of my wild looking garden. Gardens which look the same year after year should be considered old fashioned. Give me a garden full of surprises which evolves and changes. This book will inspire you to look to nature for ideas. Nature doesn't use a rule book and neither should we. Having visited the Garden House many years ago, I know understand how Keith has created a natural, wild garden in harmony with its surroundings. Full of wonderful photographs and stories about his horticultural wanderings, this is a book which you will return to again and again. Be reasured Keith, those pounds you gained whilst writing were well worth it!
