National Trust School of Gardening, Hardback Book

National Trust School of Gardening Hardback

Hardback

Description

The National Trust looks after hundreds of beautiful gardens of every imaginable shape and size across Britain - from the grandest country estate to the smallest cottage garden.

They manage such internationally renowned gardens as Sissinghurst and Hidcote.

National Trust garden staff receive countless questions from visitors about plants growing in the gardens and techniques that can be tried at home.

This in-depth guide will pass on their wisdom and provide the answers you are looking for. This book is packed with images of National Trust gardens of all types, spanning over 300 years of horticultural heritage, to inspire keen amateur gardeners and aspirational novices to realise their green-fingered ambitions.

Written by expert gardener Rebecca Bevan, with the help of National Trust gardeners, the National Trust School of Gardening will make you feel confident about developing your garden rather than overwhelmed with unnecessary technical detail.

From herbaceous borders to gardening sustainably, roses and climbers to growing under glass, each chapter provides snippets of horticultural history, examples of best practice from National Trust gardens, unique gems of wisdom from talented NT gardeners, and lots of easy-to-follow practical advice. Featuring a wide range of National Trust gardens both large and small, formal and informal, famous and undiscovered, high maintenance and low key.

The topics covered and the insightful practical guides shared are easily applicable to private gardens, enriching even the tiniest urban spaces.
