Very informative without making the characters seem like ....well Characters they're gardeners and they take themselves and their gardens seriously is that such a bad thing and the joy of being able to help god along as it were ....priceless. the only thing was his observations on South Africa and the violence as a black person who if I lived there I would have BEEN under Apartheid so it seemed rather arrogant of him to pass off Black anger as a bunch of ungrateful children who just got their toys back when it was theirs all along.
