The Jewel Garden

The face of British gardening Monty Don and his wife Sarah tell the magical story of the garden they have built over the last decade THE JEWEL GARDEN is the story of the garden that over the past decade has bloomed from the muddy fields around the Dons' Tudor farmhouse, a perfect metaphor for the Monty and Sarah's own rise from the ashes of a spectacular commercial failure. At the same time THE JEWEL GARDEN is the story of a creative partnership that has weathered the greatest storm, and a testament to the healing powers of the soil. In his weekly column for the Observer, Monty Don has always been candid about the garden's role in helping him to pull back from the abyss of depression; THE JEWEL GARDEN elaborates on this much further. Written in an optimistic, autobiographical vein, Monty and Sarah's story is truly an exploration of what it means to be a gardener.

About the Author

Monty and Sarah Don have been gardening together for 20 years, originally in London, where they based their jewellery business, and over the past ten years in Herefordshire, where they now live with their three children. Monty is best known for his weekly column on the Observer, for presenting a number of prestigious series for Channel 4 and, most recently, as main presenter of BBC Gardeners' World.


'Overwhelmingly honest, passionate, inspiring, with prose to die for. Like everything else Don does, this purports to be about gardens and gardening but is actually a meditation on family and love.' -- Julie Myerson, Books of the Year, Independent on S 20041226 'Truly inspiring ... told with compelling honesty' -- Mail on Sunday 20041226
