Drawn to the Garden (9780711290556) £20.00
Through the pages of Drawn to the Garden, Caroline Quentin shows how much joy she gets from spending time in her garden, whether it be grappling with the best way to grow plants and vegetables, or raising seeds in her potting shed. She now has a large following of fans on her Instagram account, CQGardens, but her attitude to gardening is the same as it has always been – expertise helps but is not essential. Gardening should be fun and enjoyable, filled with the simple pleasures of planning, planting, harvesting and cooking. It is also a meditative and restorative pastime, and a great way to lift your spirits. This charming gift book, illustrated by Caroline herself, mixes personal stories of her life and experiences in the garden with practical tips, recipes for food and drink, and even the occasional favourite poem. As she likes to misquote Dorothy Parker: ‘Take to horticulture, it’s cheaper than a shrink’.
