Click on the photos above to read more about what makes these books such a worthwhile read… or visit the Modern Mint Shop.

If you want a quick run-down of why these books are such a worthwhile purchase, then see below:

  1. They offer practical advice that you can actually take action on at home in your own garden.
  2. The writer, John Walker, is an award winning writer who knows how to tell a story well – especially when it comes to earth friendly gardening!
  3. If this beautiful earth of ours is to be made even better, the ideas these books showcase need to be acknowledged.
  4. They are great value and can easily be popped into a bag, suitcase or even a pocket for reading on holiday. We often take them on the train with us into London, as they fit neatly into the back pocket of our jeans, making it easy to carry around.
  5. They make a fantastic gift for a friend – so don’t be shy in buying one!

I Only Have Enough Money for 1 Book – Which is Best?

They are all good, honestly, but the best if you are on a budget is ‘How To Create an Eco Garden.’ It is packed full of useful information and is a lovely, weighty book to hold in the hand. It includes lots of illustrations too.

(As a bonus, The Digging Deep books would be our second choice, as they are full of wit and really get you thinking. Buy Digging Deep the Collection here.)

Running Low

Sorry to people asking for some of our pruning tools, but we have run out of a few items and are waiting for more to arrive. I did a number of garden talks this week and demonstrated the quality of some of the tools. This led to a run which I hadn’t anticipated! So apologies again if you are missing out, but everything should be back in stock by next week. Many thanks for all your support here at Modern Mint! Darren

A Very British Garden – New Garden Talk For 2019

A brand new garden talk for 2019? My, what exciting news! Having had a busy summer, with the topiary work exploding after the Guardian article, I have plans to write a new garden talk for next year. So far I have written 6 different talks in the 4 years I have been running Modern Mint, 4 of which are still available for you to book. They are: What Do I Do With This Space? A garden talk that looks at how other cultures treat their outdoor spaces. A mixture of funny stories and practical advice, it shares techniques people from …
