Description
Practically an institution in Britain, The Garden Expert has been in print and continually revised for more than 50 years, becoming the world's best-selling introduction to gardening. Its author, D.G. Hessayon, was included in the Daily Mail's list of "60 Truly Great Elizabethans" (meaning the current Elizabeth, of course) for "teaching millions of us how to garden." Of course, the book sets out (as it always has) what you need to know in order to look after your garden; this new version also shows you how to care for wildlife, the environment, and your own well being, whether you decide upon a completely organic approach or prefer to take just a few steps as a green gardener. The Green Garden Expert explains how to prepare the ground the "no-dig" way; choose the right plant for the right place; and plant and tend flowers, trees, shrubs, fruit, vegetables, and wildflowers. It also shows how to tackle weeds and pests, attract (and identify) birds and butterflies, and even how to avoid injuries while enjoying your garden.

"No-nonsense expert advice on making your garden a place that is people, animal and environment friendly. Probably the most practical and realistic guide for most people"—The Bookseller
