Canada's best known gardening personality, Mark Cullen believes that Canadians of all ages need to play more--preferably in the dirt. From early on, at the grubby knees of his father Len, Mark learned that gardening is full of surprises and fun. (Len was known to kiss an evergreen and indeed hug a tree, long before it became fashionable).
Mark was reminded by his own young son Ben of the playfulness gardeners often miss as they dig, hoe, weed and water. The result is A Sandbox of a Different Kind, Mark's 17th book. Featuring a chapter for every week of the year, it contains his reflections on and insights into the Canadian gardening experience based on 25 years of working in the industry and in his own garden.
Written with humour and passion, A Sandbox of a Different Kind is a refreshing take on our most popular outdoor activity, offering food for thought and ideas for fun.
This engaging book is a must read for every Canadian who loves to garden or simply enjoys the experience of being in a garden.
