~book review: a woman's garden~

by - April 19, 2021

'Tis the season for gardening!  And I've found the perfect book to help kick-off my favorite time of year: A Woman's Garden: Grow Beautiful Plants and Make Useful Things* ($24.99) by Tanya Anderson.
Tanya's gardening repertoire is quite extraordinary.  Not only is she an organic gardener, she's also a soap maker, beekeeper and beauty producer in the United Kingdom.  Impressive!
A Woman's Garden features "seven categories of useful plants, and introduces you to inspiring women gardeners from around the globe."  The book shows "how to grow dozens of plants and then transform them into gorgeous items to nurture yourself or gift to others."  You'll learn how to:
  • Use onion peels to dye wool;
  • Make lavender soap and bath bombs;
  • Prepare a healing calendula skin salve;
  • Create paper mache leaf lanterns;
  • DIY a rose petal facial mist, and more!
How cute is this olive oil planter?  And I never thought of using an old handbag for planting.
The book is filled with a variety of helpful gardening ideas and step-by-step how-tos for creating over 35 inspiring projects, edibles, and art from your garden.

Don't just take my word for it.  A Woman's Garden is available by visiting Amazon.com (or clicking the link above).
