Time and the Gardener: Writings on a Lifelong Passion
“A treasury of garden wisdom by a seasoned gardener who is companionable, amusing, and full of surprises.” —Diane Ackerman, author of Cultivating Delight
Now in paperback, the perfect companion for new and veteran gardeners alike. From her vantage point as an octogenarian gardener, Elisabeth Sheldon knows that one of the most important elements in the making of a garden is the passage of time. This is true in the making of a gardener as well; no great gardener is young. In Time and the Gardener, Elisabeth Sheldon shares with readers the lessons, triumphs, tips, favorite plants, and more that have guided her over the last three decades.

“Not since Thalassa Cruso has there been such a lucent, informative voice.” —Michael Weishan, host of PBS-TV’s The Victory Garden
