This is the perfect book to guide you through the gardening year. And, on days when the weather keeps the most courageous gardener indoors, this is the perfect book to curl up with beside the fire. Anna Pavord always has something interesting to say and says it with great style and candour.

Synopsis

The Curious Gardener by Anna Pavord

12 chapters - one from each month of the year together with 72 pieces on what to do in each month on all aspects of gardening and how to get the best from flowers, plants, herbs, fruit and vegetables, through reflections on the weather, soil, the English landscape and favourite old gardening clothes, to office greenery, spring in New York, waterfalls, Derek Jarman and garden design.

Reviews

PRAISE FOR ANNA PAVORD:

'[The Tulip] is a passionate masterpiece
Mail on Sunday

'Written by a scholar, reads like a thriller'
Daily Telegraph

'[The Naming of Names is a] beautifully written, gloriously illustrated history of how brilliant men from the days of Aristotle attempted to classify the world's plants. Here are enough upstagings and rivalries for 100 novels and endless fascinating facts'
Jilly Cooper, Daily Telegraph Books of the Year
