Overview

Foreword by 'Botanic Man',Professor David Bellamy:
This gardening book is the most unusual I have ever read. Really a biography of Michael Scott, who was born in New Zealand. It contains many good tips (and trips) to increase one's knowledge of gardening. An easy read, very slick and full of interest to those who love gardening - or who decide that this is a great way to pay one's way around the earth. ---- 'I blame it on Abies magnifica,' says the author of his decision to leave New Zealand and embark on a horticultural and botanical journey around the world. Taking gardening jobs as he goes, Michael Scott seeks out the plants and gardens he knew previously only from textbooks and observes the flora and people he encounters with a keen, incisive and often caustic wit.
From Chapter 22 'The Rugrat'(Gardening in Los Angeles): 'His hairpiece was hopeless. If he'd picked up a squashed rodent from the road and plonked it on his head, it would've looked more authentic.'
