If you've been labouring under the delusion that gardening is a staid suburban pastime, this is the book that will change your mind. Scotsman From Borneville to seed bomb: a lightness of touch and a sprinkling of plant puns make inspiring cultural gallop through an alternative history of green in the city. RIBA Journal A bravura account of the power of flowers ... a truly important book that fills a gap between the overt political action of immediate protest and the slow cultural protest, both ecological and environmental, that might bring about the deep structural change in society envisioned by many small steps that begin with the planting of a tree or the laying out of a park on wasteland. Times Educational Supplement A stimulating and enjoyable read. BBC Gardens Illustrated A lovely and evocative family story covering a cycle of one moon to the next. The finely stylised illustrations of Shirin Adl are a perfect match. School Librarian This is a highly original history of the harnessing of horticulture in counter-cultural political activism... As one might expect from the professor of cultural studies at Salford University, it is a determinedly Left-wing, peppered with political assumptions and class prejudice. But don't let that put you off. The meat of this book is compelling, and benefits greatly from the eye of someone from 'outside' the gardens world... Much food for thought here. Daily Telegraph This is an exciting and thought-provoking book that cajoles us to understand the context in which gardens are created... It's tone is always approachable and its organisation good. My copy is already sticky-noted, underlined, and dog-eared for future reference and mmore in-depth pursuit. Garden Design Journal Fascinating alternative history. Venue A challenging read exploring new ways of looking at gardening. Irish Garden Uncomfortable in places but hugely thought-provoking. Guardian A fascinating and erudite history that made me want to go and cultivate my garden. Independent on Sunday A fascinating exploration of the many ways in which gardening, land use, environmental conservation,, methods of cultivation etc are shot through with politics. Ham & High Parts of this book may make your blood boil. Good! Other parts will make you laugh or move you to tears. Historic Gardens Review Immensely interesting, thought provoking and stimulating.
