The Curious Gardener Summary

The Curious Gardener by Anna Pavord

In The Curious Gardener, Anna Pavord brings together in 12 chapters - one from each month of the year - 72 pieces on all aspects of gardening. From what to do in each month and how to get the best from flowers, plants, herbs, fruit and vegetables, through reflections on the weather, soil, the English landscape and favourite old gardening clothes, to office greenery, spring in New York, waterfalls, Derek Jarman and garden design, Anna Pavord always has something interesting to say and says it with great style and candour. The perfect book to guide you through the gardening year and, on days when the weather keeps the most courageous gardener indoors, the perfect book to curl up with beside the fire.

'This collection of Pavord's writings, arranged month by month, manages to be both eloquent and amusing ... As ever, Pavord doesn't take herself too seriously and has a wonderfully light touch' * Sunday Times 'Gardening Book of the Year' *
'Lively, conversational and personal, it's a charming bedside read' * Country Life *
'Splendid ... an intimate portrait of a passionate gardener' * Sunday Herald *
'A most inviting volume ... Her vivid, conversational style, and wonderful range of knowledge on all sorts of subjects other than gardening, makes this a garden book that you could read straight through, like a novel' * Daily Mail *
