So Who's Watering the Plants?
176pp (24,000 words)
In this third volume of tales from her garden, Paula Almqvist wittily, merrily and entertainingly chats her way through the flowerbeds, discussing the latest trends (Buddha in the vegetable patch), gardening mishaps, miracle cures, lawn-mowing robots, garden fairs, barbecues, garden parties, front lawns and plant life in the stairwell.
»With a mischievous wink Paula Almqvist writes columns on trends that have shaped gardens over the last years: Buddha sculptures, must-have herbs for amateur cooking, homeopathy for plants and supposedly essential tools. An entertaining read for garden lovers.«

»A book definitely worth reading whether outside in the garden in summertime or during the dark winter months while eagerly awaiting the new gardening season.«
»Almqvists columns are of practical and present value.«
Sabine Vogel, Frankfurter Rundschau
»Once again a good read for garden lovers«
»With subtle irony, the author lets us participate in her passion (…). We also learn a lot about the famous female gardeners in England – and about life.«
Karl Günther Barth, Hamburger Abendblatt
