The 'How To Be A Gardener' television series proved a huge hit, attracting average audiences of 4 million, and the book that accompanied it, Alan Titchmarsh's 'How To Be A Gardener Book One' was the fastest-selling gardening book ever. This showed that there was a real thirst for practical, down-to-earth information about gardening.
Now, having set out the basic principles in Book One, Alan is back with this second volume which looks in depth at all areas of designing and planting to ensure you make the most of your garden.
Alan's love of gardening and years of experience designing gardens really come to the fore as he demonstrates how to create a garden to be proud of. Covering both design and plants, the chapters include boundaries and climbers, patios and containers, borders and perennials and water and wildlife gardens.
Each chapter includes practical advice on design and planning, step-by-step projects to re-vamp your garden, and a host of Alan's favourite plants to guide you in your selection.
With its perfect balance of practical advice and inspirational ideas, 'How To Be A Gardener Book Two' gets to the very heart of gardening and, together with 'How To Be A Gardener Book One', provides a complete reference manual for any garden owner.
