|About the Book|
Top Tips is a charming accompaniment to a new daytime Gardeners World strand which collects the most fascinating and useful hints and tips from 40 years of Gardeners World, to help you make the very best of your garden. Divided into chapters covering Flowers, Food, Containers, Design and a miscellaneous Something For the Weekend section, Top Tips will teach you how to make the most of classic British blooms, how to propagate exotic plants in our cool climate, the pots to plant them in and the food theyll need to help them grow. It will help you make the most of small city plots and tackle wide open spaces, to attract ladybirds and slugs as an organic army to fight flies and aphids, and to grow the plumpest, juiciest fruits and vegetables on your doorstep. All this is presented in a classic, elegant format, with fine line drawings illustrating the snippets of invaluable gardening know-how that will make the perfect gift for your green-fingered friends to dip into.
