With everyone striving to improve their quality of life, gardening has come to the fore as a leisure pursuit. In a largely urban environment, the passing on of gardening skills from generation to generation is a haphazard affair at best, and more and more of us come to gardening as complete innocents. With a change of location or a change in lifestyle we might encounter fresh challenges or have to overcome new limitations. In short, we all need advice from time to time. This book provides a practical guide to gardening. It seeks to answer all the questions that a first-time gardener might have, as well as provide new techniques for more knowledgeable gardeners.
If you are looking for straight-forward advice given in a light-hearted way, plus lots of good ideas for successful gardening, then this is the book for you . . . an essential reference tool for all gardeners - Ideal Home
