This book that accompanies the 'How To Be A Gardener' television series, which has proved a huge hit, attracting average audiences of 4 million. This showed that there was a real thirst for practical, down-to-earth information about gardening.
There's no great mystery to being a successful gardener - most of it is just plain common sense - but an appreciation of the natural world at work in our gardens will certainly help. The two volumes of 'How To Be A Gardener', in which Alan distils his knowledge and passion for gardening, represent the culminate of his many years of experience.
In Book One he sets out the basic principles of gardening, helping the first-time gardener to get started and enhancing the understanding of the ore experienced gardener. Book Two builds on these basic principles, giving expert advice on planting and design. Both books stand alone, but together they provide a complete reference manual for any garden owner.
