For those with more to do than weed the garden
I'm as time-starved as the rest of the world, a professional Celtic harper, gardener and writer with two kids. I fall in love with almost every plant I meet, but living together's not always possible. Most of the time, my garden's on its own.
Sharing what I've learned about simple, easy gardening, as I've done in this book, is a joy for me, both fun and instructive. I always teach myself as well as my readers.
And gardening can be easy, with the right approach and a little work at the beginning. Fledgling landscapes are like other baby birds - they need care for a while, then they can fly on their own.
More than anything else, we all need to take the pyramid of "least time planning, less time planting and most time maintaining" and tip it upside down. If we want to spend minutes a month weeding, then we have to spend some hours on initial planning.
The hardest part of lazy gardening, the qualities I find hardest to cultivate myself, are self-control and patience. Even now, when I walk into a nursery, some treasure will catch me, demanding to come home and live with me even though I know I just don't have the right place for it yet. But I'm learning to value my spare time as much as the plants that tempt me.
May this book guide you toward many hours of sitting on the lawn or in a comfortable chair, admiring the self-reliant landscape surrounding you, the birds, the butterflies and, most of all, the beauty you've always longed for. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.
