Synopsis

Sticky Wicket Gardening in Tune with Nature by Pam Lewis

Increasing numbers of gardeners want to modify their gardening habits to benefit the local wildlife. This is a guide to how it can be done. Pam Lewis's initial plan for Sticky Wicket, her garden in Dorset, was to take a painterly approach to combining colours in the flower borders. But, as the years passed, she realized that what she really wanted was to strike a balance between her desire for a beautiful garden and the needs of the insects, birds and small mammals that shared it with her. Pam's garden is now a feast for the eye and one for local wildlife too. This book, an account of the process, is full of valuable information for those who want to learn from her experiences.

Gardens Illustrated At Sticky Wicket, her five-acre plot in Dorset, Pam Lewis has created one of the most remarkable gardens in this country - all superbly described and photographed here.
