'No one writes with more clarity (and wit) about gardening than Ursula Buchan.' Anna Pavord

'England has a proud tradition of garden writing as literature. Ursula Buchan has signally contributed to that tradition.' Sir Roy Strong

'Ursula writes with knowledge and authority, but also with great humour.' Gardener's World
'With the distant rumble of wars and crashing stock markets in our ears, more than ever gardening is a comforting and soul-enlivening occupation,' Ursula Buchan begins her third collection of garden writings - and so she goes on to prove, as she shares some of the ways in which gardening enriches, enlightens and fascinates her.

From the agonies of entering the village flower show to the joy of the 'Evelyn' rose, from the importance of expecting the unexpected in weather to a botanical garden that is among the best on earth, from the discovery of a strange creature with a long proboscis to the satisfaction of growing peas, her interests are wide-ranging. Exploring them with dry wit and eloquence, and lightly imparting a great deal of information along the way, she shows how 'we deal, in our gardening lives, with the big themes: nature, climate, work, beauty, bounty, ever striving for that elusive heaven on earth.'

Review:

A pleasure for anyone who like garden writing to be more than just the plants. Yet these are not musings - everything is crisp and to the point. --Daily Telegraph

A joyous read with accurate observation, plenty of wisdom and a biting wit. --The Garden

An engaging read - belonging to that antique genre that she calls herself the chatty gardening book.. still a pleasure to read in the winter, especially in bed. --Evening Standard
