The Five Minute Garden

by Laetitia Maklouf

The Five Minute Garden Synopsis

Laetitia Maklouf is a garden writer and busy mother of three who has realised that the secret of gardening without becoming overwhelmed is to do something small every day. Every day, rain or shine, do something for your garden for five minutes. This book is packed with five minute things over the gardening year which you can pick and choose at random when you have five minutes to spare. These little bursts of activity are set beneath different headings: Spruce, Chop, Nurture, Fuss and Project. The author says: I tend do one thing from each heading over the course of the week. You can find the formula I follow at the back of this book, but everyone is different, and the important thing is just to begin - just pick one thing at random from the relevant month in this book, and go out and start on that, because at some point in the very near future, you'll look behind you and realise how very far you have come.
