'This collection of Pavord's writings, arranged month by month, manages to be both eloquent and amusing ... As ever, Pavord doesn't take herself too seriously and has a wonderfully light touch' Sunday Times 'Gardening Book of the Year' 'Lively, conversational and personal, it's a charming bedside read' Country Life 'Splendid ... an intimate portrait of a passionate gardener' Sunday Herald 'A most inviting volume ... Her vivid, conversational style, and wonderful range of knowledge on all sorts of subjects other than gardening, makes this a garden book that you could read straight through, like a novel' Daily Mail

A delightful miscellany 22. September 2011
Von Wiltshire Bookworm - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I received this book for Christmas and it has been a delightful companion the past few days.

The Curious Gardener is a collection of 72 articles from Anna Pavord's regular column for The Independent which she's been writing since 1986. There's 6 articles per month, followed by a list of key gardening tasks - unusual for this kind of anthology, but adding a useful touch to the elegant prose.

The topics covered are wide ranging from a gardeners' horoscope to an amusing account of how her family Christmas has changed over the years. Along the way there are garden visits, a look at the scrum that is Chelsea, growing giant vegetables, how garden media and programmes have changed with the times, alongside advice on choosing trees, slow gardening and growing fruit, flowers and vegetables.

All this is written with such a lightness of touch and humour that you forget there's useful information to be gleaned; it's far too enjoyable to be placed in the 'useful' category of books. In addition, each chapter is fronted by a lovely wood engraving by Howard Phipps to set the scene for the month.

One to read in one go whilst curled up by the fire, then to keep to hand for a friendly monthly gardening guide.

Curious, she is. Written for all gardeners. 5. Dezember 2012
Von Jan Berry - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I so enjoyed this book. I found it comforting, funny, realistic and most enjoyable. I own Anna Pavord's Tulip book which is more a reference book but The Curious Gardener is, I feel, Anna Pavord, the real gardener. She does not pretend to know it all, she talks about her failures, her grubby pests and her joys and disappointments of being a gardener. I have recommended it to other gardener friends. I was sorry to finish it.

She liked it 24. März 2014

I actually say my wife reading this 2-3 days in a row so I know the book was interesting and well written. She never gives a book more than a few hours unless its good.
