Natural Selection Summary

Natural Selection: a year in the garden by Dan Pearson (Gardening Writer)

"When it sings, a garden will have the power to transport and to lead you to a place that is magical. It is an oasis for creation, available to anyone with a little space and the compunction to get their hands dirty." In Natural Selection, Dan Pearson draws on ten years of his Observer columns to explore the rhythms and pleasures of a year in the garden. Travelling between his city-bound plot in Peckham and twenty acres of rolling hillside in Somerset, he celebrates the beautiful skeletons of the winter garden, the joyous passage into spring, the heady smell of summer's bud break and the flaring of colour in autumn. Pearson's irresistible enthusiasm and wealth of knowledge overflow in a book teeming with tips to inspire your own space, be it a city window box or country field. Bringing you a newfound appreciation of nature, both wild and tamed, reading Natural Selection is a deeply restorative experience.

About Dan Pearson (Gardening Writer)

An award-winning British landscape and garden designer, plantsman, writer and journalist, Dan Pearson's love of all things gardening stemmed from a young age. At ten years old, while his classmates were reading Enid Blyton and Alan Garner, he was devouring garden catalogues in his spare time. Encouraged by his green-fingered neighbour, Geraldine, Dan Pearson went on to become one of the most celebrated gardeners of our time. Following in the footsteps of the legendary Vita Sackville-West, he was a weekly columnist for the Observer for over a decade. He writes regularly for publications including The Times, Daily Telegraph and Gardens Illustrated. www.digdelve.com @thedanpearson
