House & Home | New Releases

Why has my shrub stopped flowering? How do I decide where to site a pond? How do I create stripes on my lawn? Every gardener has their own set of challenges, a wish list for things to improve upon, and every garden site creates its own opportunities. Whether you're a beginner gardener unclear where to start with the back yard, or have been gardening for years, each season can bring a new set of gardening dilemmas that need addressing. Help is at hand.

This easy-to-read gardening companion will help to demystify some of the many common problems gardeners face, offering explanations and solutions that are easy to put into practice. From general queries that require large-scale planning, such as how to decide where to site patios, lawns, decking and trees, to specific queries, for example about how to prune a clematis, this handy volume offers invaluable guidance and suggestions for successful gardening.

Each chapter looks at a different aspect of gardening, and is divided into specific areas, so navigating your way around the pages to find solutions to particular problems is straightforward. There are chapters on assessing the garden site; the hard landscaping; managing shrubs, trees and hedges; pruning; growing flowers; looking after the kitchen garden; maintaining the water garden; caring for lawns; propagation; houseplant and greenhouse garden care; routine maintenance; maintaining tools and equipment; and a final section on garden pests and diseases. All garden terminology is clearly explained.

Illustrated with over 700 photographs this comprehensive volume offers expert help-at-a-glance and is the perfect handy reference book for every gardener.
