"A Woman’s Garden is an inspiring, beautiful, and also practical book. It taps into today’s desire to grow our own food and create things from plants, such as homemade skincare, candles, and plant dyes. There are eight gardeners and their gardens featured, each of which specializes in a different plant food or craft, plus useful projects as to how to make soap, planters, floral ice-cubes, and more. And Tanya explains how to start growing and using plants in an easy-to-follow and readable way." ―Alexandra Campbell of the Middlesized Garden
‘ A celebration of femininity in the garden and an innovative and important book, this will expand the horizons of seasoned gardeners, while being accessible for beginners.’

If you want to start planting a garden that is a feast for your eyes, and provides materials for food, skin care, medicine, house cleaning and furniture treatment, and beautiful crafts, this book, which profiles several gardeners in the UK, US and Germany, will provide huge amounts of both inspiration and also the instructions to get you going. Soap, candles, bath bombs, and much much more. Directions for a raised bed are included, and most projects use the most "frugal" of construction materials.
Each gardener gives instructions on how to create and grow plants for specific purposes...such as edible flowers, plants that can be used to dye cloth or yarn, as well as garden projects that make growing more productive and also beautiful.
I love having so many different gardeners profiled, because you get to see gorgeous examples of multi-purpose gardens from a variety of sources.
And while there may be individual books that cover some topics in more depth (soap making or plant dyes, for example), this kind of book is the perfect way to get you started in ALL of these activities, with top notch, visually appealing projects that even make me want to make soap (and I've never had the inclination!).
I think this is a perfect book for both a beginner and advanced gardener for the same reason...this book helps you envision your own garden, and gives you the wisdom of several gardeners who are also artists in what they do. The photographs and instructions are top-notch and just pure inspiration.
Absolutely LOVE this book. Arrived yesterday and it's a feast for the eyes.
The makes and recipes in this book are simple to follow and you will want to try them all. This is the best book I have bought in a long time!
