A Garden From a Hundred Packets of Seed, James Fenton, 200

Fenton, a poet and member of the Christopher Hitchens group of English writers (McEwan, Barnes, Amis, et al) is also an accomplished gardener and in this volume, gives 100 examples of perennials, annuals, and vines which can be grown from seed. Delightful little volume that is perfect to read on a cold winter evening.
