Timeless observations on gardens and gardening,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Roots: A Decade in the Garden (Paperback)
Monty's re-appearance on BBC Gardener's World 2011 was the trigger to read this book. Relevant since this week-by-week collection of articles selected from The Observer over 12 years are frequently about creating the garden we now see on TV.
The articles haven't really dated since much of gardening is about repeated cycles. I can't say it's choc-full of advice, techniques and recommendations. The tone is very casual and readable, the contents are more anecdotal and observational than 'how to' per se. Non the worse for that, as he's authored plenty of such guides.
At the end of the day, this book tells you as much about the author as his garden.
