Synopsis: The Living Garden is the book for all gardeners (whether new or experienced) who want to work in tuen with nature to create a beautiful space. Jane Powers shows that if we cut out harmful chemical and use the right plants for our climate and conditions, we can make a garden that has a live of its own, in which flora and fauna are intricately interwoven. She describes how to plan and plant for birds, bees and other creatures (including humans) and how to grow our own food, look after our soil, make compost and plant potions, sow and save seeds, propagate plants and carry out many other essential operations.

About the Author: Jane Powers was born in Ireland to American parents and spent her childhood moving back and forth between the United States and Ireland. Her father was the distinguished novelist and short story writer J.F. Powers. She has been writing about gardens and gardening in Irish and British publications for 20 years, and has been Gardening Correspondent of The Irish Times since 1997. She also writes for The Times, Gardens Illustrated, The Irish Garden, Garden Heaven, Garden Design Journal and The Professional Gardener. She has also written about environmental matters, low impact and ethical living, food, property, art, crafts, and life in general - but her abiding love is gardens and gardening, and the people, plants and places involved. Her first book, The Living Garden: a place that works with nature, was published in 2011. A German translation, Living Garden, was published in 2013 (by Verlag Freies Geistesleben). The Irish Garden is her second book. It will be the first major book on Irish gardens in well over a decade. Jane lives and gardens in Dun Laoghaire, a coastal town near Dublin. She manages her garden organically, and with respect to the rhythms of nature. Jane Powers blogs at
