The Garden Interior is the beautiful and inspired story of how one great garden raised a family and of what goes on inside the heart and mind of a gardener. Against the backdrop of the story of one modern-day family growing up in a rambling old arts and crafts house with a gorgeous acre of lush, mature gardens, this loving memoir is filled with gardening wisdom, humor, and nostalgia for growing up in the 1960s and ’70s; it is also loaded with distinctive foodie tips and recipes that will inspire you to try them, whether you are a gardener or not. You’ll also experience a garden in each month of the calendar and encounter a lively and readable guide to being a better and more engaged gardener by understanding the rich interior life of this beautiful discipline and craft. The Garden Interior is more than the story of a family and gardening, though. It is about persistence, hope, letting go, and saying goodbye—to our gardens, to our homes, and to our children. It is about letting the things and people we love fulfill their own destinies and be what they must be. It is about navigating love and loss and change by surrendering the self and practicing humble acceptance. The Garden Interior is for anyone who has had these life experiences, whether sad or joyful. Its powerful final pages will move you and change you.

‘How fair is a garden amid the trials and passions of existence.’ What wise comment from Benjamin Disraeli. Our deep African skies, abundant sunshine and balmy climate lure us outdoors for much longer than the time devoted to indoor pursuits. Spending time in our own gardens or outdoor areas should be a singularly pleasurable pastime. Nicola Hadfield realises that harmoniously designed spaces do not have ‘to be defined by four solid walls, and transforming the nooks and corners of a garden into places of beauty has moved way beyond the practical’. She has travelled the length and breadth of South Africa to showcase gardens of every description, from the grandest to the tiniest, from classical to contemporary, to inspire you to design your own outdoor space in which to create, to recreate, to rejuvenate, or simply to find peace. A follow-up to Nicola Hadfield’s Beautiful Homes, Nicola Hadfield’s Beautiful Outdoors is filled with gorgeous colour photographs, not just of the main gardens, verandahs and patios, but also the nuances and surprises, as well as some interiors because outside designs are often extensions of the interior, or vice versa!
