It was way back in January of this year when Monty Don presented his series American Gardens on the BBC. I had to look up when this was as I have lost all concept of time this year and it feels like it was on in another lifetime. I remember watching the series and enjoying it hugely. It was a series on a grand scale which was just what was needed in those grey January days. I was therefore delighted when I was asked if I would like a copy of this new book which expands on the television series. I said yes straight away and whilst I have not paid for this book, my words and opinions are as ever my own.
This book is a great achievement. If you are struggling to find a gift for someone for that large festival that happens near the end of December and begins with C then I think this would delight them. It is one of those perfect gifts as you might not buy it for yourself but you would be over the moon if someone bought it for you.
