"We're all nurtured by mother nature's cycles and seasons."
"The language of gardening fuels the senses: talk with your hands, observe with your ears and listen with your eyes."
"It's not just about facts, information and technical know how... Gardens are about time, observation and intuition."
"Gardening is about communication, relationships, routines and life-enrichment. Gardens are places that connect us to the seasons and the life cycle. They're a vehicle for talking about esoteric and - as far as TV goes - alien topics such as beauty and fulfilment. "
"In gardens it's not just plants and insects and microbes that grow. People grow too, and the best bit is that they don't realise it's happening. It just happens. "
"Little things are big things that make little things worth holding dear."
"But we have to look after mother nature so she can look after us - the water, the soil, the air and all the life within it."
"Every creature and plant is part of her (mother nature's) amazing interconnected garden... The whole world is a garden."
"Get growing. Back yourself and make mistakes. It's your mistakes and observations that are your greatest tutors. "
"I believe in gardening the soil as well as the soul."
