The Well Gardened Mind : Rediscovering Nature in the Modern World

by Sue Stuart-Smith

One of the loveliest things about having a garden open to the public is when you are told by visitors what a difference being in your garden has made to their state of mind: bringing peace, comfort or simple being uplifted by the beauty of being surrounded by plants. This book was recommended to us by our volunteer Fiona and investigates the remarkable effects of nature on our health and wellbeing. It’s something we gardeners all instinctively know, but this is a fascinating read, explaining through contemporary neuroscience, psychoanalysis and compelling real life stories just why gardening and wellbeing are so intrinsically linked. Sue Stuart-Smith is a prominent psychiatrist and psychotherapist and is married to Tom Stuart Smith, the celebrated garden designer.
