The perfume of witch hazel in January.
The skywards race of clematis in April.
The blaze of sunflowers in September.
As the year rolls round, our gardens rise and fall to its rhythms. Every week is different from the next, but there is also reassurance in the cyclicality - the inevitability of spring blossom and the flare of autumn berries at the other end of the season.
Dan Pearson takes us through twelve months in the garden, from his city-bound plot in Peckham to twenty acres of rolling hillside in Somerset. Through a beautifully wrought landscape of words he shares with us his wealth of knowledge, and teaches us to see the gardens around us with new eyes, whether in the countryside, village or city. Natural Selection is a book to bring you year-round joy and a newfound appreciation of nature, both wild and tamed.
