About this deal

This is a feel-good book, one that catapulted me away from a stressful week straight into the peace of the natural world. The book is insightful, personal, educational, amusing, inspiring, entertaining (is that enough adjectectives? Although the book was predominantly written through the lockdowns of 2020, "the Don" (as I like to refer to him. I found out so much about him and the knowledge he has about not only about gardening but the creatures and birds that visit was amazing. Each chapter is a month and I had intended to read one chapter per month in 2021, but that goal got away from me midway through the year.

The book is presented almost as a yearly diary annotating the events and interactions with wildlife - both flaura and fauna. My only criticism is I wish it had been purposefully written in a Whether you live in the countryside or the town, Monty’s observations and insights are relevant to each and every one of us. I regard this book as a treasure trove of all the many wonders of the natural world that surround us. this is a very timely and relevant celebration of the world immediately around us - at a time when we really need it.My Garden World is Monty Don taking us through the year in his garden and farm, made up of tasty vignettes and morsels.

I will keep this book and revisit it over time, I feel I learnt so much from it and hopefully will be able to filter it along to others. Observations and insights of every living creature he encounters, every tree, bird, flower, wild flower, weed, insect and so much more.Divided into sections, each one headed by the main subject of the piece, I really like the style of writing that is often nostalgic. Overall this is an easy book to dip in and out of as well as one you can throw yourself into for a lengthier session of quiet escapism.
