Time : 2.00pm
Place: "The Shambles"

It is difficult to decide who won't want to read this book. If you have ever have gardening questions, a tricky little problem with what to serve for dinner or need to find out how to keep your body in shape after the Christmas glut. This may be the book for you. It will answer the questions you didn't want to ask and possibly say some stuff that just didn't need to be said.
Chris Donlen lives on a farm in the Obi Obi Valley a quaint little back water where farmy stuff happens . Kyleigh lives at "The Shambles" at Montville where there always seems to be gardening going on except when there is nothing happening. At afternoon tea we will help you to debrief over a glass of bubbly, herb tea or a mug of pretty ordinary coffee. Feel free to bring a support person or guardian just in case.

Reviews: " My favourite gardening book"  Rodney Rude
 " Well I never..!!"  H.R.H. Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall.
 " An eclectic collection of narratives, bespoke design but free of artifice. We loved the evokative images and our journey on a stylish culinary adventure" Monty Don and Kevin McLeod

    Love to see you at the launch

                 Chris and Kyleigh
