    Fascinating take of the Don s life and strugglesI guess that watching Gardeners World every Friday that viewers think that Monty Don has a great life, who wouldn t like to spend their days in the garden It was fascinating to read about their early life together, the jewellery business, Month s depression, the family and his they struggled through some really tough times Above all this book is life affirming and shows that with hard work and determination that amazing things can happen It s a Fascinating take of the Don s life and strugglesI guess that watching Gardeners World every Friday that viewers think that Monty Don has a great life, who wouldn t like to spend their days in the garden It was fascinating to read about their early life together, the jewellery business, Month s depression, the family and his they struggled through some really tough times Above all this book is life affirming and shows that with hard work and determination that amazing things can happen It s a beacon of hope for everyone, dedicated gardener or not

    The story of the importance of a garden in two people s lives told by both and through diary entries is interesting, but they don t come across as very appealing characters and the garden sounds a bit of a cross between pretentiois and messy, like their lives really It s a bit too honest, self centred Fascinating though.

    EnjoyableAn interesting biographical account of their lives, gives flesh to the brutality of unemployment, the despair of failure and joy of the countryside.Left me respecting and admiring Mr M Don even , it s no wonder I enjoy him on TV so much.

    Wonderful readRead this in between many long, difficult writing assignments I am watching Big Ideas, Small Spaces along with my family and dreaming of restoring our garden to its former glory This book was great because it doesn t rush you I didn t know half the plants mentioned in it because I live in India However, I had a wonderful time looking them up and thinking what could parallel the experience here.
