Review:

* 'Unmissable, the obvious book of the year for anyone who wants to take gardening seriously. It is full of hilarious observations, impatient comment and invaluable concise advice, grounded in years of personal activity.'

Robin Lane Fox, Financial Times
* 'If I had to find one book to suit a beginner and an expert, and to keep on my own shelves for reference, this would be it.'

Mary Keen, The Spectator
* 'This book is great fun as well as informative and useful ... Her long experience of plants and gardening - and of people - shines through.

Tim Richardson, Daily Telegraph
