Book Description

26 April 2001 Rhs
Whatever the season, this accessible reference book is a guide to a full 12 months of horticultural tasks. Clearly laid out and completely practical in approach, the guide is designed to ensure you make the very best use of your time. As well as specific monthly tasks for every part of the garden, there are at-a-glance checklists, expert plant advice and tips on organization including "Get Ahead" and "Is it Too Late?" With more than 1000 full-colour photographs of star plants for each month, step-by-step photographic sequences of garden projects and illustrated tasks, this is the garden reference that not only tells you what to do when, but also shows you how to do it. To help you upgrade your garden or make maintenance easier, there is a DIY project suggestion for every month, each of which has been tried and tested to guarantee success. Good gardening depends on timing - when to plant and when to prune, when to feed and when to water, when to build and when to maintain. Whatever your level of gardening expertise, let expert gardener Ian Spence be your trusted guide through 12 months of satisfying and successful gardening.

If you want to maintain your garden but don't have the time to make this a full-time occupation (i.e. you are working full time!!) this is a super help - tells you what to plant, prune, lift, protect etc on a monthly basis. There is even a checklist at the beginning of each month. Just what I needed to make sure that I do the essential things at the right time, so that my garden looks good each year. Loads of lovely pictures, so this book also looks good on the coffee table...!

This book is fantastic - month by month it tells you which tasks to carry out in your garden and how. This is absolutely priceless when you are new to gardening or when you are short of time (or both!), or it can even just act as a monthly reminder.
There is no complicated jargon but it isn't too simplistic either. The level of details is just right for an amateur gardener.
Each month is then broken down into various categories like Vegetable Garden, Greenhouse, etc... which makes it easier to find what you want. There are also bigger practical projects, like things to build for the garden.
The pictures of plants and flowers are beautiful which makes reading the book even more of a pleasure. And the price is right too, what mnore could one want?
Altogether a perfect book from the RHS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, yes, yes 19 Sep 2008
By Robinho
Format:Hardcover
How did the author manage to make a gardening book so good? No wonder its endorsed by the RHS and I don't want to repeat the already very good reviews posted here?
Nothing to be done in the garden in January? Don't belive it take a look at the month at a glance guide. The perfect book in many ways, Star Plants of the Month see what you have to look forward to with stunning pictures, in those depressing dreary days of January turn the pages and feel the motivation return. It really is a good book if you buy as a gift buy two or you will never give the present away. I'm sure you will enjoy (its a little better than Alan Titchmarch's The Gardeners Year, sorry Alan).

5.0 out of 5 stars What every gardener needs. 9 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is just what I needed to tell me all about gardening, since I am a novice yet now own a house with a big garden. It was all I wanted and more. Had I known how informative the book was before buying it, I would not have purchased the 'RHS encylopedia of plants and flowers' too. This is much more user friendly and gives plenty of information about different plants - enough for me anyway. I would thoroughly recommend 'Gardening through the year' to anyone who is new to gardening, or a keen gardener wanting more tips.
