Description: Know how to care for your garden all the year round with this invaluable gardening book which has been organised for really quick and easy reference. Flowers, lawns, fruit, vegetables, hedges, water gardens, bog gardens, greenhouse plants – all are included and for every month lists are given of plants, shrubs and trees that are in flower. The differences between gardening in the north and south are taken into account.
Illustrated throughout with b&w line drawings and diagrams.
Forest green boards with white text on spine, and white embossed image of a watering can, trowel, and fork. Unclipped jacket (2/11 – just 5d. more than a Ladybird; surprisingly cheap for a book of this size!) worn around its extremities with several closed tears, but is otherwise complete and loss free. Pages are tanned around their edges, but are otherwise unmarked, and free from foxing.
