Gardening is one of today's most popular leisure pursuits, yet is rarely seen as a holistic, therapeutic practice that can enrich lives and fulfil spiritual needs. This work attempts to redress this imbalance by exploring the history of horticulture and the ancient wisdom of poets and philosophers.

From the Back Cover:

Gardening is one of today's most popular leisure pursuits, yet rarely, if ever, is it seen as a holistic, therapeutic practice that can both enrich our lives and fulfil our spiritual needs.

In this exquisitely crafted and illustrated book, Donald Norfolk attempts to redress the balance as he explores the history of horticulture, and the ancient wisdom of poets and philosophers. Tracing the natural rhythms and beauty of the changing seasons, he also demonstrates how we can all discover the secrets of nature's healing, restorative powers.

Uniquely inspirational and illuminating, THE THERAPEUTIC GARDEN invites us to recapture the simple pleasures of the past and to create a new, enriched vision of the future. It is a vision that leads us to understand how, when we cultivate the soil, we can also cultivate the soul.
