8 Reviews
A charming account of how Margery Fish and her husband created a cottage garden from an overgrown farmyard. Writing in The New York Times Book Review, Michael Pollan said: "Much more than a period piece, We Made a Garden is a gentle reminder that plants are only a small part of what a garden is. The good ones are autobiographies written in green."

Review: We Made a Garden

User Review  - Wilma - Goodreads

Her husband was a tyrant. She used only proper names of the plants so I had to read at my computer to see what she was writing about. Did not finish this book as it was so irrating. But enjoyed talking about it at my Garden Book Club meeting. Read full review
