My Roots: A Decade in the Garden

by Monty Don - £9.99  Hodder and Stoughton (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780340834626 | ISBN 10: 0340834625

'I have been on holiday for the past fortnight. I told everyone that I was going to Norway, which was a surprisingly effective means of closing the conversation down. In fact I stayed at home and gardened, blissfully, all day and every day, not leaving the curtilage for days on end. The weather, of course, was better than Norway, or Barbados for that matter. Perfect.'
 
Monty Don's weekly dispatches from his Herefordshire garden have been a fixture on the Observer for more than a decade now, and this book is a collection of some of his favourite pieces.
 
By turns intimate, poetic, down-to-earth, funny and charming, they express the very particular outlook of a writer for whom gardening and life are one and the same thing.
