Michael McCoy's Garden, Episodes 1 - 32

It’s now 20 years since the publication of Michael McCoy’s Garden. So we decided we’d ‘republish’ it reading one or two entries a day for several weeks. It is one of the few gardening books ever recorded as an audiobook (by the ABC in 2003 – still available on cassette!!), so we know it stands up OK without illustrations. Hope you enjoy it!
