In this book David Jensen joins the ranks of garden writers whose words come from the soul as well as the soil. Written as a seasonal diary in the voice of a true place maker, his passion for themid-Atlanticgardenhe calls homeshines through on every page. --- Elizabeth Barlow Rogers, president of The Foundation for Landscape Studies and author of Writing the Garden, A Literary Conversation Across Two Centuries. Don t take this book to bed--treat yourself to a quiet moment with a cup of coffee and David Jensen as your warm, witty, and wonderful companion. The Garden Interioris a generously personal account of the gardening year, which eloquently reminds us that it s not so much about what we gardeners do for Nature, but what Nature does for us. --- Angelica Gray, author of Gardens of Marrakesh. Reading David Jensen makes me want to sit right down and start writing or go do some planting in my own garden. He declares in the Introduction that his book is about . . .how a garden grew and how a gardener grew as well, and how they formed and cared for each other. Gardening how to--and how not to--is in these pages but what is unique is the author s discoveries of why we garden. Bravo! --- Elvin McDonald, author of more than 50 gardening books and former garden editor of House Beautiful, Family Circle, Traditional Home and Better Homes and Gardens. David Jensen is an American gardener who is a long-time contributor at EverythingZoomer.com and has earned the handle The Spiritual Gardener .

I could tell immediately from reading David Jensen's delightful book that we are kindred spirits.Reading these pages is like having an intimate and engaging conversation with a wise and interesting friend, one who shares my personal passion for gardening. --- Barbara Paul Robinson, author of Rosemary Verey: The Life and Lessons of a Legendary Gardener. A heartfelt and deeply personal account of one man s gardening life. Delicious recipes accompany wise words of horticultural advice from a skilled and devoted gardener. --- Alex Ramsay, photographer for Japanese Zen Gardens and The Gardens of Venice and the Veneto.


'The Garden Interior' brings to mind Frances Mayes's 'Under the Tuscan Sun', though in a more stateside and family-focused manner. --- Foreword Reviews It's a month-by-month `garden memoir' in the beloved tradition of Henry Mitchell, which means it's brimming with expertise and commentary and leavened with quirky humor, endearing humility, and a sense of wonder that is both cosmic and grounded, quite literally, in the soil. --- The Philadelphia Inquirer In this book David Jensen joins the ranks of garden writers whose words come from the soul as well as the soil. Written as a seasonal diary in the voice of a true place maker, his passion for the mid-Atlantic garden he calls home shines through on every page. --- Elizabeth Barlow Rogers, president of The Foundation for Landscape Studies and author of Writing the Garden, A Literary Conversation Across Two Centuries.
