I’ve read it and I loved it. But then I knew it wasn’t a gardening book. I think that Monty writes beautifully (almost poetically) and in my opinion his best books are about other things with the garden inevitably intertwined. There are plenty of other places to go for a how-to manual.For those who love reading writers who talk about their gardens but write beautifully as well I can recommend Katherine Swift (Th Morville series), Eleanor Perenyi (Green Thoughts), Mirabel Osler (a gentle plea for chaos) and Anna Pavord (The curious gardener). They are all wonderful - but not a “how-to” paragraph in sight 😂

It is a joy to spend time with famed English horticulturalist Monty Don as he watches wildlife, tends to his garden, and generally appreciates the natural world. Don, who received an O.B.E. for service to Great Britain, has been the lead presenter of the BBC series "Gardeners' World" since 2003. He's a gracious host who shares his educational and often amusing observations in an easy, conversational style. Don has a pleasant, slightly throaty voice; his accent is educated without sounding pretentious. And his timing is comfortingly practiced, neither dragging nor rushed.
Consisting of observations and short essays on everything from moles to primroses to wrens, as well as the fragrance of warming soil, this is an audiobook to cherish and gift. A.C.S.
