In this lushly-photographed book, iconic garden voice Margaret Roach shows gardeners how to incorporate lessons from her glorious garden into their own home landscapes. 

A Way to Garden—sensitive, wise, deliberate, thoughtful and splendidly bossy—prods us toward that ineffable place where we feel we belong; it’s a guide to living both in and out of the garden.” —The New York Times Book Review

"A gorgeous, helpful, and tenderly funny book for anyone who likes putting plants in the ground. I love the fact that it's 'A Way to Garden' not 'THE way to Garden.' Less Hubris, more mulch." —Ann Patchett, author of Commonwealth and State of Wonder

“Roach’s conversational tone showcases her personal experiences while highlighting important horticultural information, making it a compelling book to read straight through that is also useful as a reference for particular details. Readers will appreciate Roach's focus on gardening as a way anyone can help make the world a better place.”Booklist

 The perfect reading companion for those of us who feel that gardening is an unstoppable addiction.
