Create a luscious garden that will flourish all year round with this new edition of a best-selling guide to gardening month by month.

Gardening can seem like a mystery when you’re new to it. In this fail-safe guide, BBC Gardeners’ World writer Ian Spence tells us what to plant, prune, cut, and cover – and exactly when to do it. Organised by month, this book breaks down complex information into ‘things to do’, ‘last chance’ reminders, and ‘get ahead’ tasks, before recommending seasonal plants that will bring colour to your plot, all while keeping one eye to the skies with a monthly ‘weather watch’ panel, and offering step-by-step instructions for new projects. Learn how to care for flowers, trees, fruits, and vegetables, and maintain features such as ponds, willow fences, containers, bird boxes, and more. Pick up skills such as saving seeds, cutting and drying flowers, conserving water, weeding wisely, potting herbs, and gathering your harvest. Then, plan ahead for next year using the detailed directory of 350 plants.

New gardeners will stay one step ahead with this essential companion to gardening through the seasons.
