A garden with flaws, and a life for that matter, is often one filled with fun and adventure. Have you ever watched Gardener's World and fantasised about getting your hands dirty like Monty Don? Pull on your steel toecaps and dig into these laugh out loud tales of one woman's life spent outdoors, standing out like a sunflower in a row of cabbages.

Grasping The Nettle Summary

Grasping The Nettle: Tales from a Modern Country Gardener by Tamsin Westhorpe

Tamsin Westhorpe's delightfully funny memoir of making a living with mud permanently under her fingernails will delight any reader. A cast of colourful characters pepper the pages of her hapless horticultural exploits, which range from dispensing gnome-placement advice on live TV to how to deal with nudist neighbours or the inside scoop on why the roses surrounding the beautifully manicured English lawn bowling greens grow quite so vigorously...

About Tamsin Westhorpe

Tamsin Westhorpe is a hands-on gardener who has had a varied and successful lifelong career in the horticultural industry. She has worked as a parks greenskeeper, an interior landscaper, a lecturer and as the editor of The English Garden magazine, and as a judge at RHS Chelsea. She now looks after Stockton Bury in Herefordshire, her uncle's four-acre open garden. Her aim is to demystify gardening and she hopes that reflecting on her career will encourage others to jump into the wheelbarrow and choose horticulture as a life partner.
