"Sydney Eddison is my kind of garden writer, now passing along wisdom acquired from 50 years. No BS, no rhetoric. Trust this writer; she knows what she’s talking about.”
"I found it liberating to be given an excuse to ditch some of my backbreaking chores. Who’s waiting to grow old? I’m preparing for the future right now. You can tuck this perfect gift into your basket."
This book was the right read at the right time.
She also teaches us that if we have one genus or species monopolizing our time and dominating our garden, we need to think about reducing its number.
I highly recommend this book for gardeners and non-gardeners; her books are wonderful reads and make excellent gifts.

There are some good ideas in this book. However, most of them I already knew about. I didn't relate to it as my garden is so much smaller.Published 12 months ago by Gladys S.
It was a huge book and did not give enough info for a small garden - everything was on such a huge scale - most people would not utilize the plans. Of no value to me.Published 16 months ago by ruth moffat
