Diary of a Modern Country Gardener, Hardback Book

Diary of a Modern Country Gardener Hardback



Secrets for every season, straight from the potting shed.

Discover the pleasures and pitfalls of a year in the great outdoors at Stockton Bury Gardens, a four-acre open garden at the heart of a working farm.

Tamsin Westhorpe's year-long diary of gardening is honest, funny and full of practical hints and tips for success - from how not to lose your trowel to how best to answer the perennial dilemma of the plant that needs 'well-drained soil and a sunny spot'.

Packed with favourite seasonal plants, timely reminders for each month and entertaining tales of moving sheep, thwarting rabbits, and speaking at rural village halls, Tamsin's diary is a handy, practical companion that celebrates the British seasons in all their changeable glory - from someone who lives, breathes and eats country gardening.
