Books by Liz Zorab
Escape into nature and follow your gardening dreams with books by Liz Zorab.
If you want to dig deeper into the processes of growing your own organic food, self-sufficiency practitioner, Liz Zorab, offers insights to the rhythm and patterns of her gardening year. In this personal gardening journey, she explores seasonal harvests and how the vegetable garden sits within the wider context of the gardening landscape – including weather, microclimates, water cycles, light levels, seasons and the gardener’s personal tastes and preferences.
Liz’s salt of the earth approach to life and to the garden and her gentle humour makes The Seasoned Gardener an easily digestible read. She provides hundreds of practical tips, including how-to guides, observations and inspiration for both the beginner and practiced gardener alike.

You can read why I wrote this book and some of the process of writing it on this blog post. There is certainly much more to writing a book than I had imagined and seeing some of the processes behind the production has left me with a feeling of awe for the publishers, Permanent Publications, who have been supportive, patient and great to work with.
