The book begins with simple design ideas and advice about planning lawns, beds and borders, with straightforward instructions for laying paths, putting down decking and erecting fences. There's plenty of practical information on using a huge variety of plants, from trees and shrubs to climbers, bulbs and border flowers, and essential advice on what to buy, as well as guidance on planting and pruning. The book then builds on this basic knowledge to suggest more spectacular ideas for gardens. It explains how to create and plant ponds, and incorporate simple and eye-catching water features, and gives practical advice on preparing and planting a bog garden and a rock garden. Once the flower garden is under control, you can discover how easy it is to grow all kinds of fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables. This section includes illustrated information on every aspect of the kitchen garden, from planning, sowing and planting to harvesting and storing, with plenty of practical advice about growing crops in a greenhouse. The final sections cover the skills you will need to keep your garden in tip-top shape, from weeding, feeding and pest control to propagation, and includes an at-a-glance checklist of essential tasks to do throughout the year.
