Uprooted: A Gardener Reflects on Beginning Again

Author(s): PAGE DICKEY


The engaging story of leaving a beloved garden and creating a new, very different garden, by one of America's best-known and most accomplished garden writers. Page Dickey and her husband Bosco recently walked away from their celebrated garden at Duck Hill. After 34 years of cultivating, nurturing, and loving their land, they left behind the thousands of perennials, bulbs, and trees they had planted young and watched grow and stretch over time. In Uprooted, Dickey reflects on this transition and on what it means for a gardener to start again. Readers follow her along the journey: searching for a new home, discovering the ins and outs of the landscape surrounding her new garden, establishing the garden, and learning how to be a different kind of gardener. The surprise at the heart of the book? Although Dickey was sad to leave her beloved garden, she found herself thrilled and challenged to begin a new garden in a wilder, larger landscape. Written with humor and elegance, Uprooted is for gardeners and plant lovers, fans of garden writing, and people seeking a meaningful gift for the gardeners in their lives. AUTHOR: Page Dickey is a garden writer, lecturer, and designer. She has written on garden design for House & Garden, House Beautiful, and Elle Decor. She lectures regularly on garden design and teaches classes at the New York Botanical Garden and the Horticultural Society of New York. 75 colour photographs
