Gardens can be places of relaxation and refuge, stimulation and solace. Reflections from a Garden is about all of these, but the authors also attempt to break the mould, reflecting on drama, time, senses and other concepts in the garden.

"[...] one of those rare gardening books designed to be read and to provoke debate [...] it rises head and shoulders over most other recent gardening books [...]"
- Patrick Taylor, Sunday Telegraph

"Garden journals are usually replete with highly personal musings and occasionally chock-full of botanical minutiae. Here is one for the connoisseur of literate writing who also appreciates horticultural wisdom tempered by aesthetic concerns. Expect practical aspects of design to be challenged, along with plenty of philosophical musings that both delight and provoke. Hill and Stuart delve into such topics as "liberation" from "general garden guilt," elements that add drama to garden spaces, and experiences that arouse the senses. At once erudite and supremely satisfying, the reflections contained here remind gardeners to trust their own instincts, revel in mundane chores, and most definitely celebrate great successes when they occur. An entertaining "Grumbling Appendix" isolates quotes from the book to voice special opinions."
- Alice Joyce, Booklist
