's review

it was amazing

From Sordibub, lone survivor of a pack of sunflower seed sown by the author’s 4-year-old son, to carnivorous pitcher plants flourishing in their designer bog, to trees planted to mark the births of children . . . this book tells fun, funny and down-to-earth tales of the disasters, plans and happy triumphs we all experience when growing plants on whatever scale.

Rachel records here, the blooming of both her garden and herself as gardener with thoughtful and informative monthly journal entries penned over a span of eight years. For more, find the Unglamorous Gardener on the YouTube channel of gardening advice and videos showing off this now very glamorous Irish garden.
