Overview

In this visual diary of life in the garden, The Land Gardeners share their beliefs on the importance of soil health, introduce you to their favourite blooms and inspire you to create your own cutting garden with expert knowledge on how to grow and what to gather by season.

Based in the original walled garden at Wardington Manor, The Land Gardeners have revived the tradition of working with the land to produce abundant, seasonal flowers for clients’ use in decoration, design and events. But for all the frivolous bucolic beauty of the flowers, it is the productivity and health of the soil that truly underpins The Land Gardeners’ philosophy. The book explores lively soil, the joy (and, arguably, necessity) of gathering from our gardens, and the imperative that we care for our soils and live among healthy, vital gardens.
