Every gardener should read this!
on 28 October 2011
I read this many years ago in paperback form, with black and white engravings from the original.
It is not really a how to do it gardening book but more of a 'sit by the potting shed in the autumn sunshine, and plan what you'll do when you have the time' kind of book... have a notebook by your side!
I find it incomprehensible that there are no other reviews of this... perhaps there are of older printings. Suffice to say 'buy it' for the text which reads like a Victorian diary full of hints and tips of the most useable kind.
It is a gem to be treasured!
