Every gardener wants a garden that looks good throughout the year. This essential book shaws you how to achieve that aim, with comprehensive advice on all aspects of seasonal care and maintenance from introducing new plants and pruning to soil management, pond care, and lawn care. Garden writer and broadcaster Steven Bradley guides you expertly through the vital tasks of the gardening year. Spring is the busiest time; everything must be done immediately and weeds make up for a winter of dormancy. Summer is a time of prolific growth--plants require constant staking, feeding, and watering. The pace slows in the fall, but this is the time for assessment and planning, and of course the garden must be made ready for winter. *Covers new planting, propagation, pruning, lawn care, pond care, and every aspect of routine garden maintenance. *Includes 18 step-by-step projects from a rose arch to planting ground cover. *Hundreds of artworks and photographs illustrate gardening's practical aspects.
