A Guide to what not to do in your garden. Gardening is widely regarded as one of life's great joys. However, you might not feel that way if you pay too much attention to the experts: every garden magazine and newspaper relentlessly publishes hectoring instructions telling you what you must do in your garden this week or this month, to the point where your garden can become a source of constant stress or wasted energy. Rather than add to the pile of suggested drudgery, this book is instead dedicated to relieving you of pointless and unnecessary garden work, and suggests easy and pleasant ways to look after your little patch of paradise. This paperback book has 192 pages and measures: 19.8 x 12.9 x 1.4cm

As a dedicated professional gardener I bought this book because I take an interest in the thoughts and ideas of others, and what I found was that this book takes the same approach that I take when i have limited time and a huge area to cover and/or my customers have a limited budget. It would be nice to spend a whole day edging borders or painstakingly cutting down perennials with secateurs, but in truth there is usually never enough time to do It, so different approaches are necessary. While the gardening elite may shrink back in horror at the suggestion that Miscanthus can be walloped back with a hedge trimmer or that big plants that self seed should be used where budgets are small and gardens are big, for those of us who live in the real world it's often vital to 'think outside the box'. While I don't agree 100% with everything the author says this book does at least give hope to people who maybe inherit a large garden with a house they buy or who similarly find themselves with a patch of ground to look after but no budget to get someone in to look after it!
Of course, if you do need a professional gardener you can call me on 07--....
