Create a Year-Round Beautiful Garden.
BBC 'Gardeners' World' presenter Pippa Greenwood on how to create a gorgeous year-round garden.
Most people use their garden almost exclusively in summer. Although the weather is undoubtedly better for this brief part of the year, Pippa Greenwood believes you can increase your garden's potential and the enjoyment you derive from it if you turn it in to a garden which flourishes all the year round.
Pippa's supremely practical book shows how to plan and create a garden that will satisfy whatever the weather: what will look bright in the summer and have attractive seedpods come the autumn; top ten lists of aromatic, architectural, evergreen and perennial plants; offseason colour and tips on prolonging flowering. She considers the question of maintenance, gardens for young children and how to deal with problem areas.
