The Roots of My Obsession: Thirty Great Gardeners Reveal Why They Garden
Why do you garden? For fun? Work? Food? The reasons to garden are as unique as the gardener.
The Roots of My Obsession features thirty essays from the most vital voices in gardening, exploring the myriad motives and impulses that cause a person to become a gardener. For some, it’s the quest to achieve a personal vision of ultimate beauty; for others, it’s a mission to heal the earth, or to grow a perfect peach. The essays are as distinct as their authors, and yet each one is direct, engaging, and from the heart.
