'One of the most thrilling moments occurred ten years ago when I found a single wild flower growing on a grassy bank. It was not particularly rare - a common spotted orchid - but it was like discovering a pot of gold - or perhaps, more accurately, the promise of gold. It was a sign that recovery was possible from even the most inauspicious situation.' Spend a year in the garden with Monty Don - the UK's favourite gardener, writer and broadcaster - accompanied by his beloved dogs, Nigel and Nellie. A breath of fresh country air.

Each season has something different to delight in - from the primroses and bluebells of spring, to butterflies that colour summer skies and the crowds of migrating swallows that herald the coming of autumn - all have a place alongside the yearly cycle of growth and renewal. My Garden World is an ode to the ever-surprising and comforting presence of nature. In exquisitely written prose, reflecting the best of nature writing, this book offers an opportunity to walk alongside Monty, month by month, and experience the commonplace miracles and rhythms of nature through his eyes.

Reviews for My Garden World

Written in Don's typically accessible but engaging prose, My Garden World is our protagonist's latest celebration of his favourite subject. * Irish News * *Best gardening books of 2020*. This is a gentle and soulful read, full of little a-ha moments, that takes us through a calendar year of garden wildlife observations. * The Times {Saturday Review} * Really rather wonderful. Not only is it a celebration of all that grows in his garden, but of everything else living there too... Every page a joy. * Nigel Slater * Both informative and personal. * Greenock Telegraph * His world is one big garden of delights. * Saga * Both informative and personal * Argus (Brighton) * *Best Christmas Releases* -- While some gardeners appear bent on suppressing nature, Monty Don loves and works with it. His new book is a celebration of the living world, through which he walks us, following the calendar year, pausing to observe everything from hares to hawthorn. His world is one big garden of delights. * Saga * Full of warmth and affection * Edinburgh Evening News * As familiar as a cup of tea and similarly as heartening, Monty Don is something of a gardening legend... this is a very timely and relevant celebration of the world immediately around us - at a time when we really need it. * Cotswold Life *
