THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER & BEST GARDENING BOOKS OF 2020 – Sunday Times
‘Every page a joy’ NIGEL SLATER

‘From a very early age I loved the countryside as much as any garden and was fascinated by the life that I saw all around me from trees, wildflowers, birds, insects and mammals. In a sense this book has been over sixty years in gestation. I have kept notebooks and journals ever since I could write and I have drawn upon these as well as the events of the past year.’

Spend a year with Monty Don. My Garden World is a celebration of every living creature and the natural world that we all share. Recent times have given us the enforced opportunity to learn more about the fascinating natural world around us. Whether you live in the countryside or the town, Monty’s observations and insights are relevant to each and every one of us. My Garden World is Monty Don’s personal journey through the natural year, month by month, season by season, observed from the immediate world around him.

‘Wildlife is not something that we watch happening in remote and exotic parts of the world on our screens, but right here in our own back yards and the more that we encourage it and learn to live with it, the more rewarding it becomes.

If, in our own modest back yards, we can help preserve and treasure our natural world then we will make the world a better place — not just for ourselves but for every living creature.’

Publisher Review

And what better way to celebrate the natural world than with everyone's favourite gardener. Monty Don observes with detail the animals, birds and wildlife that come and go throughout the year, encouraging us to help and preserve the world around us. * Woman * Written in Don's typically accessible but engaging prose, My Garden World is our protagonist's latest celebration of his favourite subject. * Irish News * *Best gardening books of 2020*. This is a gentle and soulful read, full of little "a-ha" moments, that takes us through a calendar year of garden wildlife observations. * The Times {Saturday Review} * Really rather wonderful. Not only is it a celebration of all that grows in his garden, but of everything else living there too... Every page a joy. * Nigel Slater * Both informative and personal. * Greenock Telegraph * His world is one big garden of delights. * Saga * Both informative and personal * Argus (Brighton) * *Best Christmas Releases* -- While some gardeners appear bent on suppressing nature, Monty Don loves and works with it. His new book is a celebration of the living world, through which he walks us, following the calendar year, pausing to observe everything from hares to hawthorn. His world is one big garden of delights. * Saga * Full of warmth and affection * Edinburgh Evening News * As familiar as a cup of tea and similarly as heartening, Monty Don is something of a gardening legend... this is a very timely and relevant celebration of the world immediately around us - at a time when we really need it. * Cotswold Life *
