Page Dickey knew the transitions she faced walking away from her celebrated garden at Duck Hill after 34 years. What surprised her were the happy opportunities that came with starting over. Uprooted (Timber Press, September 29, 2020) follows Dickey’s evolution from old to new, cultivated to wild, and from one type of gardener to another. Photography in the book is by Ngoc Minh Ngo and Marion Brenner.
