Staff Reviews

Perhaps my favorite diary of gardens and gardening. English garden writer Anna Pavord is fun, inspiring, and educational--everything you'd want in gardening narrative. There's some how-to here as well, but mostly you read this book for the pleasure of it.

— From Carla's Picks


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.
