Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Overwhelmingly honest, passionate, inspiring, with prose to die for. Like everything else Don does, this purports to be about gardens and gardening but is actually a meditation on family and love. (Julie Myerson, Books of the Year, Independent on Sunday)

Truly inspiring ... told with compelling honesty (Mail on Sunday)

Présentation de l'éditeur

THE JEWEL GARDEN is the story of the garden that over the past decade has bloomed from the muddy fields around the Dons' Tudor farmhouse, a perfect metaphor for the Monty and Sarah's own rise from the ashes of a spectacular commercial failure.

At the same time THE JEWEL GARDEN is the story of a creative partnership that has weathered the greatest storm, and a testament to the healing powers of the soil. In his weekly column for the Observer, Monty Don has always been candid about the garden's role in helping him to pull back from the abyss of depression; THE JEWEL GARDEN elaborates on this much further. Written in an optimistic, autobiographical vein, Monty and Sarah's story is truly an exploration of what it means to be a gardener.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspiring story 28 mai 2013
Par murillo98
The authors talk frankly about their respective foibles - jewelry for her, gardening for him - that led to an initial bankruptcy, but which they managed to funnel into a worthy endeavour - their Jewel Garden. It is inspiring to read about how they forgave, cooperated, and preserved their marriage. Beautiful pictures, a nice coffee table book or rainy day read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful memoir by one of Britain's top garden program presenters 12 juin 2012
Par Tooncesmom - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I'm a fan of the British program Gardeners' World, hosted by Monty Don. Each episode offers wonderful tips any gardener can use, even one in the Santa Cruz mountains! I've enjoyed Monty Don's garden, tips and his down-to-earth style, so much so that I wanted to learn more.

A search revealed several books, one of which is The Jewel Garden, a journal written by both Monty and his wife Sarah. Subtitled A Story of Despair and Redemption, it tells about their meeting at Cambridge, their first successful jewelry design company and devastating financial reverses. Finally, it tells about their love of gardening, their devotion to each other and how these loves order their lives. The trade paperback has a number of lovely photos showing the Dons in their London days and the transformation of an old listed Herefordshire house on two acres into one of the country's amazing gardens.

The Dons are self-taught gardeners: they grow what they like with a preference for an informal look and the inclusion of vegetables that find their way to the table.

From Sarah: "Over the years life has become more comfortable and the happiest time that we spend together is in the garden. The energy has now gone from making it to sustaining its rhythm."

From Monty: "We have made this garden together; there is nothing in it that is not a result of that partnership. From the mess and joy of our past and present we have created a place that is intensely personal, yet lives quite separately from us. It is this precious thing that we are making out of life's muddle."

The above two observations epitomize the substance of this delightful memoir. If you love gardening, you will thoroughly enjoy The Jewel Garden by Monty and Sarah Don.

First published by Hodder and Stoughton, 2005. 179 pages.

What can I say? Monty Don is the gardener's guru. I watched his BBC gardeners world on TV and moaned that every episode was too short!! Now that I own his books I am in gardener's heaven even though I live in the opposite hemisphere. He is real. I feel is gardening is achievable for the non purist gardener like me. Every gardener should own his books. This one is a great read, full of information and ideas and keeps one heartened about things that can and do go wrong. A most enjoyable book.

I love this book. The story of the Dons life and gardens is riveting. I like Monty Dons honesty and forthrightness. They both work very hard and the results in the jewel garden are stunning.
The photos are excellent and inspiring. Also when you read about a particular part of the garden, there is always a photo of it, which I really like.
