Synopsis: 'TRULY INSPIRING' Mail on SundayTHE JEWEL GARDEN is the story of the garden that over the past decade has bloomed from the muddy fields around the Don's Tudor farmhouse, a perfect metaphor for the Monty and Sarah's own rise from the ashes of spectacular commercial failure.At the same time THE JEWEL GARDEN is the story of a creative partnership that has weathered the greatest storm, and a testament to the healing powers of the soil. In his weekly column for the Observer, Monty Don has in the past been candid about the garden's role in helping him to pull back from the abyss of depression; THE JEWEL GARDEN will elaborate on this further. Written in an optimistic, autobiographical vein, Monty and Sarah's story is truly an exploration of what it means to be a gardener. Incidentally, the book covers all the Dons' garden, but the 'Jewel Garden' itself is a part of it that is planted with particularly vibrant, vivid, jewel-like plants. This area more than any other draws on the years they spent in the fashion business. With specially commissioned photography by the renowned garden photographer Nicola Browne, this book will be a jewel-like object in its own right.
About the Author: Monty and Sarah Don have been gardening together for 20 years, originally in London, where they based their jewellery business, and over the past ten years in Herefordshire, where they now live with their three children. Monty is best known for his weekly column on the Observer, for presenting a number of prestigious series for Channel 4 and, most recently, as main presenter of BBC Gardeners' World. In 1999 Monty and Sarah completed their book and critically acclaimed television series, Fork to Fork, in which they cultivated, harvested and cooked their own organically grown vegetables.
