The perfect bedside read from the world's best-loved, best-selling writer of the Expert gardening books.
There are times when we simply wish to read about our hobby and not be badgered by advice. If you enjoy reading about plants whether or not you can grow them, or enjoy discovering gardens you may never visit and could never hope to match, or are keen to learn how people gardened in the past and what they have contributed to our gardens today, then this is the book for you. It includes sections on the great gardeners in history; extraordinary and surprising plants; remarkable gardens around the world; key gardening moments in history; the wildlife in our gardens; things for the plant lover to do indoors, and other 'this and that' trivia, statistics and fascinating things you never knew, all illustrated with charming line drawings.
The Bedside Book of the Garden is a gardening book to be read at leisure, which will never tell you that you have to go outside, and which will not only make you a better gardener but will open your eyes to the magic of gardening.
