    Book details


Creating a spectacular garden is challenging when you thought you'd be living somewhere else by now. How do passionate gardeners struggling with limited resources manage to put aside feelings of inadequacy and envy and begin to create an oasis in the midst of numerous obstacles? Why should they even try?

In her debut book, Big Dreams, Small Garden, columnist and blogger Marianne Willburn presents a comprehensive step-by-step plan for creating an ideal garden in less-than-ideal circumstances—encouraging the discouraged to pick up their trowels, put on their gloves, and get on with it.

With humor and irreverence, she painlessly guides readers to make a deeper connection with the places they call home, letting go of limiting emotions and embracing a new perspective, and in doing so, makes a case for one of the longest relationships in human history—that of man’s relationship with the soil.

Big Dreams, Small Garden is an informative, often lighthearted look at coming to terms with your space, embracing your space, and miraculously falling in love. It cannot fail to appeal to a generation that is once again returning to the land only to find that it is further and further out of reach.

Review Text

  • By JSD on 27 April 2017

    This is exactly the sort of concise, precise and elegantly illustrated work novice and not-so-novice gardeners need if they are to transform their less-than-perfect outdoor spaces into havens. Abloom with elegant and informative photographs, the text witty, uplifting and instructive, there is inspiration galore in BIG DREAMS, SMALL GARDEN. And when the work is done, the rewards are both subtle and bountiful - as the author states:"Scent is possibly the most evocative of the senses. Build fragrance into your garden and you'll find it hard to ignore the siren call drawing you away from work and toward a reflective state of mind."
