* The Lady Books of the Year *

"This charming book is aimed squarely at inexperienced gardeners with a modest budget who want quick results. Like all the best gardening books this one leaves you itching to get out in your own patch."

* Daily Mail *

"Anyone faced with a small, empty garden could design and plant their borders using just this book for guidance."

* The Garden *

"I approve of the way Lucy flags up flower shape and height as being key to a successful border...there's lots of information about individual plants...a useful 'flower calendar'...lovely photos by the brilliant garden photographer Jason Ingram really bring it all to life, too."

-- Alan Titchmarsh * Waitrose Weekend *

"Feeling inspired by Chelsea Flower Show? Novice gardeners can take heart with this new book that shows you how to create a beautiful and wildlife-friendly space in just twelve months."

* A Little Bird *

"An encouraging book, especially for the beginner."

* The Irish Garden *

"A great practical manual for the novice gardener. A great guide to making an easy, low-maintenance, wildlife-friendly perennial garden."

* Garden Heaven *

"Help is on hand from this delightful new book that gives a step-by-step guide on how to start from scratch and get your garden blooming within a year."

* Daily Mail *

"Both practical and inspirational."

* Country Living *

"There's a wealth of inspiration, practical guidance and passion for an environmentally sympathetic model of gardening that leaps off the pages and will have you skipping merrily down your own garden path, well on the way to constructing your own brilliant and wild garden, in no time at all. "

* Garden Weeds and Words *

"An infectious approach...Urban gardening has long ignored the nature around it, but even if one garden in every street adopted Bellamy's plan, our cities would be more buzzing and beautiful. Brilliant and Wild makes that seem enticingly possible."

* Gardens Illustrated *

"Bellamy makes gardening simple, expressive and joyful. Anyone can do it cheaply and with little spare time."

* Evening Standard *

"Required reading...a simple guide for total beginners who want to achieve a wildlife friendly haven rich in color and form."
