Sex, drug and gardening. That’s the spirit of the bestselling Garden of My Ancestors, now in its fourth edition. This is a powerful story about a family farm set in the misty mountain reaches of Limpopo province, the African tale of a wild and wonderful family where magic realism meets White Mischief. Set in an incredible garden against ancient mountains that change every day, Garden of My Ancestors is sat, tragic, funny and philosophical – and an evocative testament to the healing powers of gardening.
