Book Description

9 Jun 2011

Britain's favourite gardener Alan Titchmarsh has also been the most popular contributor to Gardeners' World magazine for the last twenty years.

This collection of his very best columns, demonstrates just why he is regularly voted the readers' favourite. His brilliant writings are, in turn, practical - just how far back should we prune our roses? - opinionated - I always rail at people who go out on a Sunday afternoon to tidy their gardens. I mean, a garden is not a sock drawer - cheeky - I have a theory that gardeners grow to look like their soil and wistful - You've got to be a bit of a dreamer to get the most out of your garden.

So lay down your trowel, take off your wellies, sit back and enjoy a bit of quintessential Titchmarsh.

5.0 out of 5 stars My love of Alan Titchmarsh 8 Aug 2011
By Mazda
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As always, reading Alan Titchmarsh's books, I am completely and utterly enthralled by them. I can actually hear Alan's voice in my head and it seems as if he is talking to me personally. This makes reading all his books much more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tales from Titchmarsh 7 Sep 2011
By Jenny
Excellent. It is a jolly good read. Made me laugh out loud. Titchmarsh's down to earth approach and, at times, self-deprecating manner to his daily activities are most rewarding.
