In this practical and personal book, Gardeners' World presenter Adam Frost takes you through his process for getting the most out of a garden space whatever its size, whether it's a window box, a terrace with a few pots or a bigger space with dedicated veg plots and borders.
As we were all restricted to our homes during lockdown, we rediscovered our gardens and the nature in our own backyards. The popularity of Gardeners’ World surged, too, with ratings doubling over lockdown, where they have remained since. Adam’s no-nonsense gardening advice on the show – encouraging us all to just get stuck in – as well as his guidance on connecting with the outdoors and maximising our green spaces has never been more valuable.
As Adam shows in his first official Gardeners’ World book, enjoying your garden is about more than just what you grow; it's also about why you grow it. A garden is only as good as the home attached to it – 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.
In sharing his favourite gardening techniques and tips, Adam also 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. From tips on growing perennials and fruit and veg, to recycling and repurposing various things into pots, this inspiring book provides all you need to make your garden thrive, and to use it to develop your own traditions and meaningful moments.
