In time for spring, Gardening – A Beginner’s Guide arrives on book shelves for those who don’t have that natural green thumb or could just use some help with their planting.
Many homes in the UK have gardens, varying from ‘pocket-sized’ to large estates, and many people now also have access to allotments and community gardens.
But how can you make the most of your garden, and where do you start, if, like many people, you have no knowledge of the basics?
This guide will provide practical and informative advice about:
How to get started
Designing your garden - whatever its size
Choosing the right flowers and shrubs for your soil
Caring for your lawn
Growing vegetables, fruits and herbs
Maintaining your garden once it’s established
Written by an experienced garden journalist, this book will be a no-nonsense guide, using common plant names rather than Latin names, and including a gardener’s dictionary.
