The Gardener's Year
Best-selling author Alan Titchmarsh brings us the definite guide to gardening throughout the year. Destined to become an invaluable reference source for gardeners, Alan's new book reflects the way we garden today.
'The Gardener's Year' is not about quick fixes, design makeovers or hard drudge, but simply about knowing what you should be doing in your garden, when, and why.
Month by month Alan gives us the low-down on garden maintenance enabling you to keep your garden looking its best, with sections on lawns, trees, shrubs and climbers, flowers, patios and containers, vegetables and herbs, fruit, greenhouses and water gardens.
A wealth of step-by-step illustrations guides you through useful practical techniques, and comprehensive checklists highlight essential tasks for each month.
Designed for easy reference, the book will answer all your queries, from what seeds you can plant out in your vegetable plot in May to how to protect your tender plants in November.
