In this indispensable book, Steven Bradley offers comprehensive advice on every aspect of seasonal care and maintenance, from introducing new plants, propagation and pruning to soil management and lawn care. He guides you expertly through 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 autumn, but this is the time for assessment and planning, and the garden must be made ready for winter. It covers new planting, propagation, pruning, lawn care, pond care and every aspect of routine garden maintenance. It includes 18 step-by-step projects from making a rose arch to planting ground cover. Hundreds of artworks and photographs illustrate the practical aspects of gardening.
