Mediterranean gardening offers a way of living in harmony with the earth without contrived effects or heavy spending. Born of long human experience on the land, it is frugal and fruitful, serves many purposes and gives many pleasures, year-round. Today, it adapts easily to our growing ecological awareness, to individual creativity and community sharing. Above all, it perpetuates a longstanding partnership between human beings and their environment, tested in Mediterranean countries for millennia. Mediterranean cooking grew from peasant roots but has become fashionable today all over the world without loss of local diversity. More than a mere trend, it has been widely adopted because of its underlying, enduring practices: it is seasonal, local, healthy and flavourful, economical but capable of great refinement. Mediterranean gardening has much the same base and similar benefits. Like the cuisine, Mediterranean gardening offers an approach that can be adapted to all climates and budgets, for better, sustainable living in harmony with the environment. - Louisa Jones The author encapsulates the essence of Mediterranean gardens and landscapes in this beautiful book. Her authoritative writing, evocative photographs and lyrical poetry brilliantly celebrate these timeless gardens and lifestyle. The principles of Mediterranean gardening as described in this book will provide meaning and a sense of purpose for gardeners everywhere.
About the Author
Louisa Jones was associate professor of French and Comparative Literature in Canada and taught art history. In 1975, she moved to France permanently. She studied gardens in France, always linking them to people, landscapes and traditions and wrote her first book, Gardens of Provence in 1992. In recent years, she has concentrated on Provence and her many books have established the region’s importance for international garden design. She covers modest gardens to grand stars and links garden art with architecture, sculpture, cuisine, farming, literature …ancient and modern. This book is the distillation of decades of experience, close observation and reflection on the meaning of gardening in the Mediterranean and - everywhere.
