    Waited so long for the book (pre-ordered) and it was well worth it…pictures are fabulous…made the ‘herb spiral’ and growing so well…

  2. Laurie Davis

    This is a lovely book for gardeners. The rich and helpful text is supported by lots of photographs. I especially like some of the projects (pallet strawberry planter), recipes (floral ice cubes, flower petal fritatta, three-mint mojito), and various “Galleries” (edible flowers, culinary herbs, plants for the home). This is a beautiful and practical book. I pick it up for information often.

  3. SchneiderPeeps

    A Women’s Garden is a beautiful and inspiring book on grow and using plants. One of the things I really like about this book is that it’s not just about one woman’s garden, you’ll get a peek into 8 different gardens that each have a different focus. While most of the gardens are in the UK, there are some in other parts of Europe and in North America.
    While this isn’t necessarily a “how-to garden” gardening book, there are plenty of tips and information for choosing growing various types of plants for each of the 8 gardens. The 8 gardens are edible garden, edible flowers, culinary herbs, plants for skin care, medicinal herbs, herbs for the home, dye garden, and a crafty garden. Along with growing tips, each section has several projects to make with the plants from the garden or a project for the garden.
    I think this is a really great book to help you dream and see the possibilities of your own garden and the plants that you grow.

    This is a really beautiful book! I homeschool my four girls age 17 to age 8. I bought the book in hopes of inspiring them. We all have enjoyed browsing through the beautiful pages of this book! I know this is a book we are going to have it around for years to come!

  5. Byther Farm

    Filled with beautiful, rich photographs, this book tours through cleverly designed gardens from eight creative female gardeners. Tanya has woven a clever mix of practical and inspirational ideas with essential and valuable gardening knowledge. You know you’ve found a good book when you keep going back for more ideas, this is one such book! I highly recommend it.

    I received an advanced ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley, and loved it so much I pre-ordered it.

    If you want to start planting a garden that is a feast for your eyes, and provides materials for food, skin care, medicine, house cleaning and furniture treatment, and beautiful crafts, this book, which profiles several gardeners in the UK, US and Germany, will provide huge amounts of both inspiration and also the instructions to get you going. Soap, candles, bath bombs, and much much more. Directions for a raised bed are included, and most projects use the most “frugal” of construction materials.

    Each gardener gives instructions on how to create and grow plants for specific purposes…such as edible flowers, plants that can be used to dye cloth or yarn, as well as garden projects that make growing more productive and also beautiful.

    I love having so many different gardeners profiled, because you get to see gorgeous examples of multi-purpose gardens from a variety of sources.

    And while there may be individual books that cover some topics in more depth (soap making or plant dyes, for example), this kind of book is the perfect way to get you started in ALL of these activities, with top notch, visually appealing projects that even make me want to make soap (and I’ve never had the inclination!).

    I think this is a perfect book for both a beginner and advanced gardener for the same reason…this book helps you envision your own garden, and gives you the wisdom of several gardeners who are also artists in what they do. The photographs and instructions are top-notch and just pure inspiration.

    Absolutely LOVE this book. Arrived yesterday and it’s a feast for the eyes.
