For most of us, Digging means hands (or shovels) in the dirt, planting something, cultivating, or harvesting. Teresa Watkins, garden designer, radio host, author, and instructor, has spent hours and hours on a different kind of digging, and all of her efforts have unearthed quite a harvest.
If you’re hungry for fully researched and cited gardening quotes — with associated hashtags — designed for immediate use in social media, newsletters, and emails, Teresa’s latest book, A Gardener’s Compendium Volume 3, Gardening with The Senses: Gardening in a Twitter World in 140 Characters or More is sure to satisfy.
Volume 3 opens with a selection of epigraphs, including “The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.” Hanna Rion Ver Beck (1875-1924), English painter and children’s book illustrator. The greatest gift of this book (and the entire Gardener’s Compendium series) might be the gift of time.
Written for gardening enthusiasts by a garden enthusiast and botanical bibliophile, this book is so much more than a collection of quotes. The accurate attributions and researched hashtags paired with every selected passage make the entire series a time-saving marketing resource for creating social media posts and other communications materials. A Gardener’s Compendium Volume 3: Gardening with the Senses is the perfect addition to the promotional tool kit for all types of horticulture professionals, from garden writers and bloggers to garden designers to speakers and teachers. Every horticulture marketing professional needs a copy of this series on their desk.
Here’s just one example of one of the inspiring and useful quotes included in the book:
“One touch of Nature makes all the world kin.”
William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616)
English playwright, poet, actor
“Troilus and Cressida” (ca. 1602) England
