Monty Don's intimate record in his own words and photographs of the garden he has created from scratch over the past fifteen years.
Monty Don and his wife Sarah moved into their semi-derelict farmhouse at Ivington in 1992, and their garden is the most tangible symbol of the spectacular way in which they have since thrived. Springing with amazing vigour from the soil behind the house, this space has been central to Monty's life; ever since he dug the very first border, he has obsessively written about it.
The Ivington Diaries is a personal collection of Monty's jottings from the past fifteen years. Generously illustrated with his very own photographs, and beautifully packaged, this book promises to be one of the most delightful garden books ever published.
Monty Don is one of Britain's best loved gardeners. He lives and gardens in Herefordshire with his wife Sarah, with whom he wrote The Jewel Garden, and their three children.
