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!!
INLANDS by ELIN WILLOWS – 3 STARS
THE ONE by CLAIRE FROST – 4 STARS

The lovely people at Filbert Press have kindly sent me this to review…
THE CREVICE GARDEN by PAUL SPRIGGS/KENTON SETH
published by Filbert Press
publication date – April 21st 2022
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.
TRUST ME by T.M.LOGAN (AUDIOBOOK)
The Crevice Garden sounds really interesting. I’ve recently constructed a logpile at the bottom of the gardening after reading a feature about how it can be a habitat for insects and small creatures. My excuse for my haphazard approach to weeding is that I’m “rewilding” areas of the garden.

haha rewilding is all the rage so good on you! Hope the creepy crawlies enjoy the new habitat you’ve created! They are a great way of ‘recycling’ and helping the garden!
