Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this enchanting volume Diane Dreher, the author of The Tao of Inner Peace, takes gardeners of all levels— and anyone seeking a more serene, balanced life— on a journey of self-renewal throughout the year. Divided into four parts, Inner Gardening outlines basic seasonal garden tasks and includes dozens of useful tips on mulching, composting, and pest control. It also provides insight into gardening history, showing gardeners how their work echoes centuries of tradition. Complementing these earth techniques are “ Gardening as Spiritual Practice” sections that provide exercises for self-cultivation: planting seeds to achieve dreams; weeding out bad habits; designing a “ life’ s garden, ” and more. As she blends her personal experiences with life-enhancing strategies for garden and gardener alike, Dreher affirms that what is cultivated around us is also cultivated within.
