Synopsis

Home Ground Sanctuary in the City by Dan Pearson, Howard Sooley

Ten years ago Dan Pearson found an extremely rare, large, neglected city plot and set out to design and create a garden space all of his own. Arranged by seasons, Dan shares the challenges of gardening his city plot in a romantic and beautifully written series of diary-like essays, documenting the horticultural tasks required and sharing his successes and failures on the way. Written and photographed in 'real time' this book documents an urban garden and gardener at work, bringing the experience of gardening to life and offering a unique insight into the work and thoughts of the one of the world's most respected garden designers.

Reviews

Dan has a way of making me look at plants, and the garden in which they live, with a fresh eye. His approach to my small, urban garden gently challenged my ideas of both design and planting. The result has enriched my life more than I ever thought a garden could. Dan had worked his quiet magic. Nigel Slater

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
