I don't like gardening very much but I enjoyed this book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Just Vegetating: A Memoir (Hardcover)
My wife is the family gardener and I support her by doing jobs that require no skill or knowledge. I thought she would like this book but I started reading it and became quite enchanted by the author's life and the literary style. It was fun and interesting and really quite thought-provoking in parts. About half way through it began to get very horticultural specific and detailed so I gave up at that point, and handed it over to my wife, who is a real Joy Larckcom fan. Incidentally, her allotment gardening book is brilliant, as a non-gardener I can open it up and learn about what I should be doing that day.
