My Bookish Weekly Wrap Up - 9th April 2022


Hello! Happy Saturday! We meet again... these weekends are coming round quicker and quicker each week! And disappearing equally as fast!!

Book wise it's been an OK week! Gardening has taken over my focus so books have taken a bit of a back seat, but still managed to finish 3 books.  And being otherwise occupied has kept me away from Netgalley so that's always good! Just 1 book in post wise for review!

Here's my look back!!



The lovely people at Filbert Press have kindly sent me this to review...

A crevice garden replicates the environmental conditions of mountain tops, deserts, coastlines, and other exposed or rocky places on earth. These striking garden features provide perfect conditions for the plants native to these far-off places, bringing the cultivation of these precious gems within everybody’s reach.

In this book, enthusiastic experts Kenton Seth and Paul Spriggs bring us in-depth guidance on the design, construction, and planting of crevice gardens of all kinds including those suitable for containers, small gardens, and public parks and in styles that encompass both naturalistic scenes and non-traditional installations.

A wealth of international case studies demonstrate how crevice gardens provide multiple micro-habitats that are exceptionally well-suited to plants that struggle in normal garden conditions.

Further examples reveal their value in the ecological re-use of waste materials such as concrete, wildlife habitat creation, and for making permeable, plant-friendly alternatives to retaining walls.

An illustrated A-Z recommending 250 irresistible plants completes this comprehensive book which heralds a bold new chapter in the history of crevice garden making.
