9780140462876: The Well-tempered Garden (Penguin handbooks)

This is the classic work by a gardener who combines a passionate love of his subject with a critical intelligence and a good helping of wit. THE WELL-TEMPERED GARDEN is packed with the sort of information keen gardeners crave - from planting, weeding and the pleasures of propagation to annuals, water-lilies and worthwhile vegetables. Hailed as 'a really important addition to horticultural literature' when it was first published, THE WELL-TEMPERED GARDEN is as fresh and enlightening, and as entertaining, for gardeners in the 21st century as when it first appeared more than thirty years ago.

About the Author:

Christopher Lloyd was born in the fifteenth-century half-timbered manor house his parents bought at Great Dixter in 1910. All his life he has developed and refined his celebrated garden, constantly experimenting with new plants and ideas in the use of shape and colour. In 1979 the Royal Horticultural Society conferred on him its highest honour, the Victoria Medal of Honour, and in 2000 he was awarded the OBE in the New Year's Honour List. Only recently he was won the Garden Writers' Guild Reference Book of the Year Award with CHRISTOPHER LLOYD'S GARDEN FLOWERS.
