3000 Mile Garden

Here is the latest book our librarian Diana has added to the gardens' collection: "The 3000 Mile Garden : A Magical Correspondence Between Two Passionate Gardeners" by Roger Phillips and Leslie Land.

Two garden lovers meet at a mushroom forage in New Hampshire and start exchanging letters. Each has separate itineraries and separate interests in gardening.Roger is a nature photographer and responsible for the Eccleston Square garden - a 3 acre park in London. Leslie is a food and house magazine editor and tends rambling, borrowed acreage in Maine.Through the art of letter writing they learn of each others lives and gardens.This book is a lovely read and includes illustrations and photos of both gardens and some related recipes. The 3000 Mile Garden book inspired a TV series which screened on the ABC some years ago.

This book is available to borrow from the Gardens now.
