As the seasons change, so too do the attractions of a well-kept garden. Throughout the year there is always something to enjoy, from winter jasmine and spring bulbs to summer roses and the autumn harvest of fruit and vegetables. There is also an ever-changing routine of garden jobs, however, and this book s a month-by-month guide to the tasks and pleasures of caring for your garden.
Each chapter begins with a table of plants that will be at their best during the month, to help you plan a garden for year-round interest. Following sections within the chapter deal with flowers and shrubs, lawns, vegetables and fruit, with information on growing, planting, maintenance and harvesting as appropriate.
Packed with beautiful full-colour illustrations, Gardening Month-by-Month will help you care for your garden throughout the year, making it a continual source of pleasure and enjoyment.
