We highly recommend this for anyone who needs cheering up and a break from the news.


Categories: ,


The author of this delightful book, Tamsin Westhorpe, is a friend of ours and she lives and gardens on the family farm where she grew up. Her gardening experiences are funny and the book is full of really good tips.

You’ll find a personal year-long diary of gardening along with favourite seasonal plants, timely reminders and entertaining tales of moving sheep, visiting RHS Chelsea Flower Show and speaking at garden clubs. Tamsin’s open garden is at the heart of a working farm, so her book reflects the twists and turns of the countryside. For anyone just about to embark on a life in the country, or whose town garden is never tidy and who wonders how the professionals do it, it’s a must read. Pick up tips on how to keep warm whilst gardening, get rid of chilblains and grow seasonal food from someone who lives, breathes and eats country gardening.
