A beautifully illustrated devotional book that looks at what we can learn about God from tending our gardens.

Richard Littledale invites you to push open the garden gate and join him as he discovers the joy of gardening.

A reluctant gardener, Richard took up 'project garden' to help combat the loneliness of bereavement, only to find that the physical transformation of his garden mirrored a real change in himself too. Follow Richard's journey through 52 tales and uncover what gardening can teach us about patience, humility, hope, fruitfulness and the abiding goodness of God. Beautifully illustrated throughout, each tale includes a gardening story, a biblical reflection and a prayer.

Whether you are an enthusiastic beginner or naturally green-fingered, this gentle and encouraging book reveals inspirational thoughts about life and God from the perspective of the gardener.

‘The mental, physical and spiritual benefits of gardening are well known but often overlooked. This beautifully written and illustrated book of stories, prayers and reflections will entice its readers outside to dig, prune, weed and tend and above all to grow in love and knowledge of the Great Gardener himself.’ Jo Swinney - Author & Head of Communications, A Rocha International

‘Richard Littledale's wonderful book is a pure gem. It is beautifully written and illustrated and it is as pungent and nutrient-packed as the soil from which it comes. Littledale's book is deep and yet also joyously catchy. It is about gardens and God, but also about grief and rediscovering hope and purpose when grief has brought us low. It is about God's great commission to us through the lens of gardening and gardens and it encourages us to see God as very close and very near, if only we noticed. Littledale writes with rare skill and subtlety and this book will become a modern-day quirky classic. I can kill a plant just by looking at it, but this book encouraged me to pick up the gardening gloves and get stuck in.’ The Reverend Steven Morris
