This is a lovely, informative, and beautiful book that is sure to inspire gardeners of every level. British landscape and garden designer Dan Pearson, author of numerous books and host of his own BBC series, excelled at designing his clients’ gardens but, as a city dweller, missed the daily wonders of tending to his own soil. This warm, personal book (which reminds me of Nigel Slater’s Tender) chronicles the renovation, planting, and nurturing of the new space he moves to just outside the heart of London. Home Ground is also filled with absolutely gorgeous photographs that capture both the grand vision and delicate beauty of Pearson’s garden. Highly recommended.
