I guess everyone has heard about Alys Fowler except me.
I came across this article she wrote for the Guardian a few weeks ago and it seemed to me a pretty good endorsement by someone who really knows what they’re talking about when it comes to gardening. She has quite an interesting life story — urban gardening in Manhattan, tv gardener for the BBC and into all sorts of projects and books on sustainable gardening and self-sufficient living.
And here’s the Wikipedia link with the back story:
Wouldn’t mind a couple of her books! Although that would probably just start me off on more projects than I need right at the moment 🙂
