Product description

Book Description

Rather than add to the pile of suggested drudgery, The Deckchair Gardener 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.

Every gardener should buy one copy for themselves and one copy as a very a funny and affordable present for any other gardener. Me being an experienced gardener and all, I thought I knew every wrinkle and dodge, but there are plenty of tips that made me think 'yes, why do I persist in doing that?' Just as giggle-tastic as 'Outwitting Squirrels' and just as sensible - a rare combination.

Lots of people who love gardens get conned into throwing themselves into a black hole of "essential" work which doesn't actually need to be done. This book reminds you that your garden is yours and you would be well advised to remember that before breaking your back and never having the time to enjoy the actual garden because you're too busy turning the compost or making sure your lawn edges don't get familiar with the nearest plants or doing another load of stuff that you're only doing because someone else told you it had to be done. It is written in an entertaining way, certainly, but offers a wealth of brilliant advice learned by making a large garden without throwing money and (bought in) labour at it. It doesn't finger-wag or instruct but it does get you thinking about what your garden is for and what you want from it and offers suggestions on ways to achieve that. Heartily recommended.

Format: Paperback
A book that tells it like it is, funny and quirky- perfect for dipping into when one has finally put ones feet up after a day in the garden. Made me realise that there is more to this gardening lark than meets the eye and its good to know I am not alone with my problems! Will make the perfect gift for fellow horticultural oldies and newbies alike- love it, love it, love it!
