Brian Bixley sent along this note:

The most charming comment on Minding The Garden: Lilactree Farm, a new gardening book that pushes the boundaries of the gardening literature, comes from an American purchaser’s comment on Amazon: ‘This is an outstanding gardening book - highly literate, witty, and engaging as the dickens. The author is based not in some ancestral English manse but on a frigid Canadian site he and his wife have developed themselves. I really like the serendipitous qualities of the book. There are 125 sections, some only a paragraph long, and you can savor them two or three at a time, like chocolates, all winter long.’ Get ordering Info
