'The wisest book I've read for many years … Much more than a gardening book, much more than a guide to mental health … Hugely recommended' Stephen Fry


A Times and Sunday Times Best Book of 2020

How can gardening relieve stress and help us look after our mental health? What lies behind the restorative power of the natural world?

In a powerful combination of contemporary neuroscience, psychoanalysis and brilliant storytelling, The Well Gardened Mind investigates the magic that many gardeners have known for years - working with nature can radically transform our health, wellbeing and confidence.

With illuminating stories of how people struggling with stress, depression, trauma and addiction can change their lives, this inspiring and wise book of science, insight and anecdote - now translated into fifteen languages - shows how our understanding of nature and its restorative powers is only just beginning to flower.
