RHS Gardening Through the Year: Month-by-month Planning Instructions and Inspiration [9780241315613]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

A new edition of this best-selling, easy-to-follow guide for beginner gardeners.

Let BBC Gardener's World writer Ian Spence tell you month by month what to do when in your garden, and show you exactly how to do it too. This fully illustrated book takes you systematically through the year, each chapter looking in-depth at one month at a time. A handy To Do list, along with Last Chance reminders and Get Ahead tips, gives you an overview of the month's tasks, followed by an inspirational gallery of Star Plants to showcase the visual highlights of the month.

The rest of each chapter is packed with advice on plant care, maintaining garden features such as lawns and ponds, what to prune when, and illustrated step-by-step projects and gardening ideas.

A photographic A-Z appendix of nearly 350 plants provides detailed information on growing habit and care. This updated edition features brand-new visual galleries showcasing the year at a glance in your garden, e.g. How do you have year-round interest? How do you get year-round colour or scent? When is the To Do list at its shortest so you can take a holiday? Each month has updated Weather Watch and plant care information.

Packed with essential gardening advice, RHS Gardening Through the Year is the must-have book for new gardeners and a trusty reference for old hands.

    Ideal for beginners

    I'm only just starting out in the gardening world and even though I can hunt around online for info I wanted a book to walk me through the basics and give me good grounding to get started. This is ideal as it does just that and month by month gives you a list of to dos to keep things ticking along nicely. I have gone back to this book again and again and feel that it will be something I will refer back to for a long time to come.
