The 3,000 Mile Garden book review
I've just finished reading The 3,000 Mile Garden by Roger Phillips and Leslie Land. Roger, a professional gardener in London and Leslie, an American gardener, exchange letters during the year, sharing their gardening experiences. I ecpected this to be a dry read and I'd just skim through it, but I was delightfully surprised. I felt like I was reading a novel. Through their letters, we learn about their garden successes and frustrations. The struggles they each have gardening in their climate, critter problems, people problems... We've all been there. I highly recommend this enjoyable read for every gardener.
