‘One of the most thrilling moments occurred ten years ago when I found a single wild flower growing on a grassy bank. It was not particularly rare – a common spotted orchid – but it was like discovering a pot of gold – or perhaps, more accurately, the promise of gold. It was a sign that recovery was possible from even the most inauspicious situation.’
Spend a year in the garden with Monty Don – the UK’s favourite gardener, writer and broadcaster – accompanied by his beloved dogs, Nigel and Nellie. A breath of fresh country air. Each season has something different to delight in – from the primroses and bluebells of spring, to butterflies that colour summer skies and the crowds of migrating swallows that herald the coming of autumn – all have a place alongside the yearly cycle of growth and renewal. My Garden World is an ode to the ever-surprising and comforting presence of nature.
In exquisitely written prose, reflecting the best of nature writing, this book offers an opportunity to walk alongside Monty, month by month, and experience the commonplace miracles and rhythms of nature through his eyes.
