  • Publishes in conjunction with National Gardening Month (April).
  • Highly anticipated follow up to the Indie Next Pick and Hamer’s critically acclaimed memoir How to Catch a Mole.
  • A poetic and evocative meditation on the cycles of nature, and life itself. 
  • A unique piece of nature writing that combines memoir, gardening and folklore, with philosophical musings and natural history.
  • Hamer’s How to Catch a Mole was longlisted for the prestigious Wainwright Prize.
  • Shortlisted for the 2021 Wainwright Prize for Nature Writing
