The First-Time Gardener Hardback

Hardback

Description

'A brilliant and inspirational starter kit for anyone who wants to make a garden to suit their own needs.' - Alan TitchmarshAlthough excited by the prospect of moving into their own home for the first time, many people are mystified at the thought of what to do with their outdoor space.

Frances Tophill's fuss-free, practical guide shows you how to create a space outside your own back door that's designed by you, built by you and enjoyed by you.

Beginning with advice on getting to know your garden - what type of soil you have, what the drainage and light is like - then on getting to know yourself as a gardener - do you want a vegetable patch, an abundance of flowers or simply an extension of your indoor living space? - and then moving on to the practical design, including hard and soft landscaping and building materials and guidance, Frances guides you through different types of plants and how to source and plant them.

There is also a section on aftercare, telling you the best way to keep your garden well cared for and easy to maintain throughout the year.
