THE EDUCATION OF A GARDENER
I attempted to read this book early on in my career and simply didn’t know what all the fuss was about. But since tucking a few gardens under my own belt I now find it extraordinarily relevant and poignant. Wandering through his life and work, travelling abroad, meeting his clients and hearing his stories is like having a friend and mentor at your shoulder encouraging you along at every step. He explains why something is good and why it works, why certain decisions were made and you are left with what feels like a privileged insight into his mind.
