As a garden book reviewer, I receive quite a number of books in the mail each week for me to consider giving my opinion as to whether they’re worth the time and money readers might spend on them. It may come as no surprise when I say that I look them over and for the most part, choose to read only the ones that I think I’m going to like. I try to keep things positive that way.

There are very few books that I’d say are outstanding, but there are an awful lot of good ones. One that I recently read and reviewed was “The Roots of My Obsession.” It’s a collection of essays by some well-known figures in the world of horticulture, telling how they got started gardening, what they like best about it and why they do it.
