5.0 out of 5 stars Packed full of detailed information and pictures 14 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Have been looking at my garden for a long time and wishing I knew how to even start with it. This book starts off with a whole section on planning your garden, and how best to go about it. After that there are detailed drawings, photos and paragraphs on how to look after individual plants, from planting them to pruning them, and also a list of some more popular varieties of certain plants which have their attributes listed. They have sections on how to deal with broader categories such as 'fruit trees' and others, and even have information on how to put together raised beds, water gardens, etc. As a beginner, this book will guide me well for a very long time I would imagine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the new gardener 2 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover
I'm new to having my own garden and really didn't know where to start. My dad (a keen gardener), bought me this as a Christmas gift and it's perfect. The sections are easily laid out to both read through all together and find specific items when you need to. The pictures are great and the captions match perfectly. My dad also has this book and he as a more experienced gardener finds it really helpful just to find small things he can't remember.

Would definitely recommend this to any other newbie gardener like me, or just as the staple book in your gardening collection.
