A Garden from a Hundred Packets of Seed

From the publisher:

In this light-hearted essay, James Fenton describes a hundred plants he would choose to grow from seed. Flowers for colour, size, or exotic interest; herbs and meadow flowers; climbing vines and tropical species – Here is a happy, stylish, thought-provoking exercise in good principles, which exudes that rare thing: common-or-garden sense about gardens. ‘A small book, yes, but how it grows in your mind after you put it down. It is a book about propagating plants from seeds, but it is also a book about love, for when you love you start from scratch.’ Jamaica Kincaid
