The only complete garden manual in a pocket-sized, portable format.
This book features an extensive practical section, with detailed step-by-step photography and artworks, which looks at all aspects of gardening practice and general plant care - from digging and planting, watering and pruning to plant propagation.
This is followed by an A-Z of plants covering flowers, shrubs, trees, architectural plants and climbers. Each plant entry includes quick reference charts on care and maintenance, plus extensive cross-referencing with ideas of companion plants.
Ideal for quickly looking up tools, techniques, plant care and pests, 'Collins Handy Gardener' is portable enough to be taken to the garden centre, and makes the perfect reference while gardening outdoors.
