'In Six Square Metres Margaret Simons, queen of the tiny vegetable garden, heartened me with her radiant pragmatism.' - Helen Garner, The Saturday Age;;'[A] considered and meticulously observed book written by an author who is willing to share the tribulations and joys of a blended family, a fast-paced life and the endless smell of French fries. By doing so, she permits us to consider our own plot - in life and in gardening.' - Chris Gordon, Readings;;'Packed with wit, wisdom and the occasional gardening tip.' - Brisbane News;;'It's a testament to Simons' wit and humour that a book on "gardening-related reflections" held my interest so. The vignettes range from musings on life, death and human connections to likening John Howard to a brassica and uncovering the leg of a Barbie doll in the compost. A delightful ode to the rhythm of the seasons and "life continuing in messy fashion no matter what plans we make."' - Shu-Ling Chua, BMA Magazine, 'Top 5 Books of 2015'
