Monty Don is one of the UK's leading gardeners and garden writers. He has been a gardening correspondent for The Observer since 1994, written numerous books including Fork to Fork and presented many TV gardening programmes. He is completely committed to organic gardening and environmental awareness. He lives in Herefordshire with his wife Sarah.From Booklist:
At a large, but not unmanageable, site in the English countryside, Don reigns over a lush and diverse garden of his own creation. Undaunted by having to start from scratch, he planned, then planted, areas for fruits and vegetables, flowers and topiary, hedges and herbs and now shares his hard-won knowledge through detailed but highly conversant text and luscious and artistic photography by Ari Ashley. From planning to construction, planting to composting, Don covers virtually every aspect of garden design, installation, and management with a predilection toward environmentally friendly practices. Though his personal garden is located in England, the basic and comprehensive information he shares can be applied to nearly any garden anywhere. With an intimate style and infectious enthusiasm, Don encourages the home gardener to view his or her domain as an outlet for creativity and imagination. This elegantly designed and beautifully produced book is as practical as it is aesthetically pleasing--qualities not unlike Don's garden. Carol Haggas
