Growing Thoughts: A Garden in Andalusia

Carlos March is an entrepreneur with a passionate interest in nature, gardening and hunting. In this autobiographical book, he reviews the thirty-five year history of his garden at Altarejos, a model of complementarity, equilibrium and respect for the environment. With its three hundred varieties of roses and more than four hundred species and varieties of trees, shrubs and creepers, harmonious transitions are successfully created between the house, the garden and the wild oak woods of Sierra Morena. In his constant search for aesthetic satisfaction, the author admits frankly to the mistakes he has made and offers the solutions of an experienced amateur - a far cry from the cliches found in so many gardening books.
