    2. I had no idea when I picked up The Cottage Garden at the library several years ago that author Christopher Lloyd was THE guy when it comes to horticulture I just liked to look at the pretty pictures But I was reading the best gardening book ever written Mrs Greenthumbs How I Turned a Boring Yard into a Glorious Garden and How You Can, Too and it mentioned Christopher Lloyd A lot And the funny thing was, I kept thinking she meant Christopher LOWELL Um, yeah, that s a totally different guy Anyway, [...]

    3. This book is primarily a picture book, which is why I only gave it three stars If you like that kind of thing, you d probably rate it much higher.I had to do a lot of skimming to find much meat, but the meat itself was fascinating This is an indigenous gardening form to England, practiced by peasants who had very little time or money but wanted to grow some or most of their food Back to the landers have a lot to learn Read my full review of TheCottage Garden on my blog.

    4. This is a lovely and terribly practical book covering many aspects of cottage gardening While this book is clearly geared to those living in climates friendly to English plants, the material is definitely of enough value to be useful for those of us using plants suited to our finicky regions Photos and illustrations carefully break down the creation of giant seas of plantings The emphasis is on planning and learning and creating a habit of gardening, leading one to let it take a life of its own [...]

    5. This book is almost as much about an English Cottager way of life as gardening By the end, you think that everyone has a string of dried apples in the attic and a barrel of parsnip wine in the cellar ala Tasha Tudor So should you Love the last few pages with the parsnip wine recipes where he takes you through winter gardening jobs, spring gardening jobs, summerA good one to own

    6. Beautifully illustrated with both photos of cottage gardens and individual plant details Book split into 5 sections cottage garden tradition, cottage garden plants, cotage garden features, planting the cottage garden and the working cottage garden.Again focus mostly on soft landscaping and suitable plants and their uses.

    7. This is an amazing book,full of interesting information about everything you might want to know about cottage gardens They are so beautiful but it takes work and time I admire them than ever.

    8. The Cottage Garden has so many aspects First it explains how cottage gardens came to be Then it shows plants that are favorites of cottage gardens and lastly it tells you how to grow a cottage garden If only I lived in England I m sure I could work all of this out perfectly

    9. Enjoyed rereading a gift from a dear friend, given over 20 years ago What a lovely way to anticipate the beauty of the warmer weather ahead A seasoned favorite, with exceptional reference, photographs, and nibbles of English wit.

    10. So, if I tore out all my grass and did thisum, but it would take a few years to to all that And the kids want somewhere to play still Absolutely beautiful Makes a gardener s mouth water.
