Description

Create your perfect garden without breaking the bank, with an easy-to-follow planting guide that is perfect for beginner and seasoned gardeners alike. Frost claims that gardening is one big experiment and How I Garden has a reassuringly supportive air that doesn’t assume any deep degree of prior knowledge. This book will show you how to use what you already have, with something to suit everyone's taste, space, and budget! Building on that and moving with the times, as you would expect, he embraces contemporary thinking that junks some of the ‘rules’ (for example, planting in threes and fives) and advocates a looser, less controlled approach that chimes with today’s gardeners. I particularly enjoyed the section on ornamental edibles, which introduced me to Japanese spikenard and lopsided onions.

With chapters on how to choose plants, how to grow fruit, vegetables and cut flowers and how to utilise pots and containers, the book also contains recipes and advice on preserving harvests. One of the undoubted benefits of experience is plant knowledge and Frost shares this generously here with lists of his many favourites.This is a personal account, featuring his own garden and family in the photographs and text, which brings together wisdom garnered over a lifetime in horticulture with practical advice, hands-on projects, and even some favourite recipes.

With the help of BBC Gardener's World presenter, Adam Frost, you can learn the small plantings, design flourishes, hands-on creative projects, and simple landscaping tricks to transform your garden. Taking an artisan's approach and finding ideas from his own garden, each project starts with Adam's inspiration, walking the reader through the creative process with clear step-by-step photography and instructions. Unlike other gardening books, it's all about finding ideas in the most unlikely places and turning them into something truly personal.

As well as spending time outdoors, the meaning of a garden lies in what you bring inside, from vegetables and herbs to make a family meal to flowers and seedheads to decorate the house. something that works for you - your time constraints, your budget, your family requirements, the sort of plants you like, and the effect you want to achieve. Adam explores how his own garden has allowed him to enjoy the simple pleasures in life and create precious memories - whether it’s coming down in the morning and seeing that single flower in a vase or teaching your kids how to make the runner bean chutney that reminds you of your nan. Disarmingly candid memoir from a ‘grande dame’ of garden design, filled with pragmatic insights into the practical business of being a designer. A really useful book full of personal insights into how expert gardener and Gardeners’ World presenter Adam Frost gets the most out of his garden.

Following a practical, no-nonsense approach, this gardening guide strips away complex design concepts and focuses on your needs to help you find your own garden style, even if you're clueless about where to start. He shows us his gravel garden, one of his favourite areas, and takes us into the "engine room" at the back of his garden, home to his greenhouse and where all the practical work takes place. Chapters range from how to assess your site and develop your own style, through optimising small spaces, to how to choose and grow your plants.

If the initial age verification is unsuccessful, we will contact you asking you to provide further information to prove that you are aged 18 or over. Adam’s inspiring book will guide you through all you need to make your garden thrive, and to use it to develop your own traditions and meaningful moments. He walks us through the different areas and explains the planting choices and design techniques he's used to make the most of every single section.
