    ‘The wisest book I’ve read for many years … Much more than a gardening book, much more than a guide to mental health … Hugely recommended’ Stephen Fry

    THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

    A Times and Sunday Times Best Book of 2020

    How can getting outdoors help us to look after our mental health?

    In a powerful combination of contemporary neuroscience, psychoanalysis and brilliant storytelling, The Well Gardened Mind investigates the magic that many gardeners have known for years – working with nature can radically transform our health, wellbeing and confidence.

    Prisoners given the chance to grow plants are less likely to reoffend.

    At-risk young people who get their hands in the soil are more likely to stay in education.

    Elderly people who garden live longer and have a better quality of life.

    Sue Stuart-Smith tells brilliant, illuminating stories of people struggling with stress, depression, trauma and addiction, from asylum seekers to veterans, inner-city young people to the retired.

    This is a glorious book of science, insight and anecdote that shows how our understanding of nature and its restorative powers is only just beginning to flower.
