Synopsis

How to Grow A Guide for Gardeners Who Can't Garden Yet by Hollie Newton

This is the gardening book reimagined for a new generation. A book for people who want to learn how to grow things, but haven't got a clue where to start. With the average person now spending an enormous 8 hours and 41 minutes in front of a screen every day, gardening is an easy way to escape for half an hour. Whether on a rented balcony or a sunny kitchen windowsill, it turns out growing something with your own two hands can make you feel better. Which is where HOW TO GROW comes in. Irreverent and inspiring, this book will equip you with all the know-how and confidence you need to take your first steps into a lifelong gardening love affair - trowel in one hand, drink in the other.

Reviews

'It's not quite spring, but gardening books - a genre that has lain somewhat dormant in recent years - are set to bust out all over in the coming months thanks to a hygge-like new trend for getting cosy with your trowel. Hollie Newton's How To Grow: A Guide For Gardeners Who Can't Garden Yet paves the way this month. Seed trays are the new baking trays, it seems.' -- Caroline Sanderson THE BOOKSELLER

About the Author

Hollie Newton is a self-taught gardener. She is also one of Europe's youngest Executive Creative Directors and one of the very few women in the world to hold this position. She has produced award winning work for everyone from the BBC and Volvo Cars, to Prada, the Roald Dahl Literary Estate, and Lurpak. Hollie started growing vegetables and fruit on her tiny rented balcony in an attempt to escape from the pressure of her job, reclaiming a slice of the natural world in which she feels happiest. What started as a few hanging tomatoes rapidly became a borderline obsession. On finally purchasing a forlorn wasteland of a back garden, Hollie started recording the process of transforming it into an Eden-like sanctuary, sharing her mistakes and triumphs as she went. Proving unexpectedly popular with friends, the idea for the book was born.
