Book Description

16 May 2013

Gardeners find weeds baffling and daunting. Here at last comes a practical guide which explains how weeds work and how best to deal with them.
Whenever he is gardening William Edmonds sees Charles Darwin as his mentor. Darwin was intrigued by the nature of variation in plants and how this related to which plants thrived and survived. From his minute observations we can understand how weeds can propagate and take over a garden.
Informed by Darwin’s insights, and by over thirty years of gardening experience, William Edmonds describes and illustrates one hundred significant garden weeds, arranged in the order in which they have evolved. For each there is a What To Do and a further chapter sets out the pros and cons of twenty tried and tested approaches to weeding.
Learning to recognise, understand and deal with each weed will take you well on the way to coping in a relaxed – even enjoyable – tussle with these devilish despoilers. Weeds, Weeding (& Darwin) is an enlightening guidebook for every gardener.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definite guide to weeds. 1 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A great book for a keen gardener. It would be hard to imagine that anyone could write such an amusing and informative book on weeds. All the usual culprits are included as well as a whole lots of unexpected ones. I loved learned how they have all evolved to survive and torture us.

As a gardener it provided an understanding of plants that will increase, I hope, my chances of controlling unwanted plants in the garden. It also refreshed my botanical knowledge and introduced me to the fascination that Darwin had with plants. A good read.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A different slant on weeds, should you remove, and if so how; or do you leave? Written with depth of knowledge and experience. The book itself is a pleasure to hold, feel and read, nice layout with good illustrations.
