Book Review: Garden Wisdom

This charming volume is packed with all manner of gardening tips and gems gleaned from writers beginning with John Gerard’s 1599 “Of Lettuce” to “Prince Charles’s Kitchen Garden” penned by the Dowager Marchioness of Salisbury in 2007. The brief observations cover topics ranging from the ingredients in a basic garden tool kit to picking out color schemes, the joys of composting to window boxes and everything in between. Geddes-Brown has done an excellent job of compiling interesting previously published articles, many of which are illustrated with the colorful, whimsical artwork of Angie Lewin. The faithfully reproduced full color plates will delight readers young and old making this the perfect gift for yourself or that special gardener in your life.
