I think Tim Smit writes really well. He manages for find a story to weave around every aspect. He seems knowledgeable and includes the remarks of other people who are experts. He makes a long project seems to pass very quickly and as in 'The Eden Project' manages to create an strong emotional involvement too.

I really enjoyed this but there again I am dead keen on how gardening used to be done and regard 'The Victorian Kitchen Garden' as one of the best television series ever.
