Des Kennedy's wit, coupled with sarcasm, made this book incredibly enjoyable. As a gardener, I felt as though Kennedy had somehow entered my most secret thoughts about gardening, and told all my tales of this passion. Because Kennedy himself is a gardener, he was able to deliver humorous insight into the thinking and actions of this unique breed. Intermingled within the humor, are the names of familiar and unfamilar plants, futher evoking an already crazed gardener to become even more insane. Laced with episodes from his own gardening incidents, Kennedy makes the avid gardener feel right at home, and not so out of the ordinary. Rich language and word choice enable the reader to vividly visualize a walk through fabled gardens of old, English manor and simple country cottage gardens. This book is a must-read for anyone with a passion for gardens, whether they be city or country folk. ( )

One of the best books I've ever read about gardening. The author really captures the joy and frustrations of our mutual obsession. In addition, Des is master word craftsman as well. It's just a pleasure to read an author who can work so well with the language. ( )
