Sticky Wicket: Gardening in Tune with Nature
An increasing number of gardeners now wish to modify their gardening habits to benefit the local wildlife. Pam Lewis is no exception. Her initial vision for Sticky Wicket, her garden in Dorset, was to create an approach similar to painting when combining colors in the flower borders. But, as the years passed, her desire to strike a balance between her aesthetic needs in the garden and the needs of the insects, birds and small mammals that shared it with her became an imperative. Pam's garden is now that rare treat: a feast for the eye and one for the local wildlife, too. This book, an account of this process, is both sharply observed and full of valuable information for those who want to learn from her experiences. Gardeners will also enjoy Pam's first book, Making Wildflower Meadows , about the five different meadows at Sticky Wicket.

This is my number one favorite gardening book ever. It's an inspiration and one I read over and over. I can't wait to see her third book. My dream is to visit her garden on day. If you want to garden to attract wildlife (butterflies etc) this book is not to be missed Read full review
