The Ivington Diaries

Front Cover
Bloomsbury USA, Jul 20, 2010 - Gardening - 384 pages

Monty Don and his wife Sarah moved into their semi-derelict farmhouse at Ivington in 1991, and their garden is the most tangible symbol of the spectacular way in which they have since thrived. Springing with amazing vigour from the soil behind the house, this space has been central to Monty's life; ever since he dug the very first border, he has obsessively written about it. The Ivington Diaries is a personal collection of Monty's jottings from the past fifteen years. Generously illustrated with his very own photographs, and beautifully packaged, this book promises to be one of the most delightful garden books ever published.

Much more enjoyable than Gardening at Longmeadow for me - more focus on the actual work involved in the garden rather than just a list of flowers. Read full review
