Review

Fox has an enviable education from Oxford and unparalleled experience designing and tending gardens. Initially I was fearful his writing and stories would be inaccessible to me but the preface hooked me. His humor and love of gardens pulled this fantasy gardener into a world I had never visited before. By the end of the book, I felt as if I had been deadheading flowers and chasing critters like his badger friend in gardens all my life. This is not a traditional how-to book but instead a love story revealed with each new chapter.  Only four stars because it was exhausting looking up all the flower in Google Images!
