"The perfect summer read guaranteed to lift even the lowest spirit"

This is Britain’s best known gardener on Britain’s best-loved dog and much more besides: gardening, love, family and animals. What more could you want? This memoir was reissued to mark the death of Nigel in the middle of lockdown, an event which sparked a wave of national mourning. Nigel was the handsome golden retriever who stole every scene in the BBC TV show Gardeners’ World — as irresistible, says Monty Don, as Bill Clinton in his effortless ability to bewitch the public (though without the other messier stuff, hopefully).
