THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

'Must be the most original gardening book ever'
SUNDAY TIMES

'Fascinating ... Extends the awareness - backed up by compendious and elegant research - of how mentally enriching it is to swap screen for green ... [She] renders a very special service with this book'
OBSERVER

'Stuart-Smith's beautifully written book is filled with insights into the joys but also the therapeutic benefits that tending plants can offer ...This is a life-affirming study of the pleasures of growing things'
GUARDIAN

'Combines observation, horticulture, literature and history ... it is a book that builds, chapter by chapter ... As a reference and an inspiration ... There is much here to feed the soul'
THE TIMES

'An impressive achievement ... this is an optimistic book'
SPECTATOR

'A truly uplifting book on the power of gardening - and how it can change people's lives. It's a prevailing reminder that getting our hands in the soil and helping to grow plants and flowers makes all the difference to our minds and wellbeing'
STYLIST

'A fascinating overlap between the still stumbling science of psychiatry and the ancient art of gardening'
FINANCIAL TIMES

'The wisest book I've read for many years ... Much more than a gardening book, much more than a guide to better mental health, it is a wholly convincing story of how troubled minds might find a way of reconnecting to themselves and rebuilding confidence and hope by way of nature ... I've learned so much in the way of the history of psychiatry and psychology as well as practical tips for both mind and garden ... Hugely recommended'
STEPHEN FRY

'A compelling and deeply moving account of how profoundly our wellbeing can be affected through contact with gardening and the natural world. This is a timely call of return. Read it.'
EDMUND DE WAAL

'An important and timely book ... Beautifully written ... I urge everyone to read it'
MONTY DON
