Pre-order Digging Deep in the Garden Books Three and Four, Get Your Name Printed in Them – and Save up to £4


 Pre-ordered copies of Book Three and Book Four will be posted during early to mid December 2016.

I am over the moon to announce that the third and fourth books in my series Digging Deep in the Garden, my cage-rattling collections of essays exploring gardening’s place in nature, will be published in autumn 2016 by Earth-friendly Books.

If you’ve enjoyed reading Book One and Book Two, these two new collections make perfect companions (although the books can be read in any order you choose). Check out the reviews for books One and Two here.


These paperbacks come with beautiful matt-finish covers and are printed here in the UK.

When I began compiling Digging Deep in the Garden: Book Three, the third collection of my essays exploring gardening’s role and place in the natural world, I also started to cast half an eye to Book Four, knowing it was the fourth and final book in the series.

“I can promise you writing that’s fearless yet thought-provoking, challenging but cheering, and incisive yet witty.”

Serendipitously, both books are now nearing completion and I would love your support to help get them both over the finish line and into the hands of eager readers.

I can promise you writing that’s fearless yet thought-provoking, challenging but cheering, and incisive yet witty. There are some award-winning words in there, too. My writing digs deep into an eclectic range of gardening topics, questioning how what we do in our gardens and allotments affects the living world around us. It is brain food for curious, thinking gardeners everywhere. One reviewer summed it up perfectly as ‘an intelligent reminder of the joys and responsibilities of gardening.’

Here’s a snippet from the introduction to Book Three:


Get your name printed in both books


Pre-order and see your name in the first editions of Book Three and Book Four.

You can be a part of the first editions of Book Three and Book Four. As a thank you for your support, everyone who pre-orders their copies will have their name printed in both books (or not if you prefer anonymity*) in a roll call of earth-friendly gardening honour.

I love the idea of supporting the publication of new books and seeing my name in them; it’s a nice warm feeling. I won’t be able to print your name in books Three and Four after they go to the printer , so don’t miss out and pre-order your copies before midnight (GMT) on Monday 21 November.

*Please let me know when ordering if you would prefer not to have your name printed in books Three and Four.

Pre-order both books now and save up to £4


Pre-ordering my books is hugely beneficial to me as an independent author/publisher, by helping meet the costs of cover design, editing, buying the ISBN, formatting and printing.

I’ve decided to celebrate the joint publication of Book Three and Book Four, which will complete the Digging Deep series, by offering them as a money-saving two-book set. This brings handy savings – such as lower postage costs when buying the books together rather than separately.

It also helps cut down on packaging (which will be recycled and reusable, or can go straight into your compost bin to make some soil food).

The cover price of each book is £5, and buying both books together normally costs £12 (including £2 P&P), but the special pre-order price for both books is £10 (£4 per book + £2 P&P).

Why not double up and get an extra set for £20 (save £4)?

Would a friend or relative, or your local gardening club or society members enjoy reading Digging Deep in the Garden? Perhaps they’d make a perfect, unusual gift for a not so green gardening buddy?

You can buy an extra set – two copies each of books Three and Four – at the special pre-order price of £20 (£16 for four books + £4 P&P). The normal price is £24 (£20 for four books + £4 P&P).


My books can be sent to any garden in the world*.
