Publisher's Summary

"An intimate, lesson-filled story of what happens when one of America’s best-known garden writers transplants herself, rooting in to a deeper partnership with nature than ever before." (Margaret Roach, author of A Way to Garden)

When Page Dickey moved away from her celebrated garden at Duck Hill, she left a landscape she had spent 34 years making, nurturing, and loving. She found her next chapter in northwestern Connecticut, on 17 acres of rolling fields and woodland around a former Methodist church. 

In Uprooted, celebrated garden writer Page Dickey reflects on this transition and on what it means for a gardener to start again. 

With this recording, fol­low her journey: searching for a new home, discovering the ins and outs of the landscape surround­ing her new garden, establishing the garden, and learning how to be a different kind of gardener. The sur­prise at the heart of the book? Although Dickey was sad to leave her beloved garden, she found herself thrilled to begin a new garden in a wilder, larger landscape.

Written with humor and elegance, Uprooted is an endearing story about transitions - and the satisfaction and joy that new horizons can bring.

Outstanding Garden Story

For anyone who loves to read all the gritty and delightful details of starting a garden on a new
property, this is the story for you. I can find no negatives here. I felt as though I were walking along with the author as she first explored the land and then set about restoring it in a more natural way. It’s also a tale about scaling back on garden maintenance as one grows older. I can relate. And just a word about the narrator….exceptionally good. I would hope to find more narratives like like this one.
