The gardening book I've been searching for!,

This review is from: Family Gardens (Hardcover)
I've amassed quite a collection of gardening books in my search for the book to help me turn a small plot into the perfect garden for a child to play in, but I have found The One with this book. Other reviews poke fun at the idea of a "small city garden" that has space for a pool and summerhouse. It does tickle me that as far as the author is concerned there are garden designs to suit every size of garden. However, the designs are all gardens that she has actually designed and created, and if your garden was the size of ours and most readers you wouldn't be hiring award winning garden designer Bunny Guiness to give it a makeover, so that is the smallest garden design she is going to stick in her book, to be fair. There are still elements and ideas you can use even if you're not going to be able to squeeze in a wildflower meadow, woodland area and bamboo maze. I will be whiling away many Winter evenings after the child is in bed poring over this book and fantasising about which ideas I will be trying to recreate in an awkward shaped small plot when the weather gets better.
