The Healing Garden

£6.99

Product description

'With our increasingly busy and stressful lifestyles, more and more people are discovering the joys of gardening as a means of getting in touch with the natural world. As an antidote to urbanized and alienated living, there is no better stress-buster; it soothes the mind, gently exercises the body and provides an outlet for all our creative impulses. In The Healing Garden, Gay Search delves deeper into why gardening is so beneficial for our well-being and, more importantly, shows how to transform our own gardens into more soothing and balanced places to escape to. With practical advice on everything from growing your own herbs and organic produce, to how to use scent and which flowers to grow for colour harmony, The Healing Garden demonstrates the way to a healthier, happier life with your garden. Full of fascinating information on the history behind many of these ideas as well as looking at the latest research, The Healing Garden will appeal to committed gardeners and anyone looking for a new source of inspiration in their life.' Book in very good condition.
