Natural Selection: A Year in the Garden – Dan Pearson
With great illustrations by Clare Melinsky this new title from Dan Pearson (Chelsea winner, ex-Observer columnist) is a collection of writing, some taken from his former weekly columns in the Observer that provide an account of gardening and advise and commentary through the gardening year. He also writes beautifully, expanding on the rhythms and pleasures of a year in the garden.
This is not the account of grand National Trust gardens; it speaks to anyone with a garden be that a window box, a meadow or a suburban uniformly sized plot.
