From the cover: “Sixty plans for a wide variety of gardens, ranging from herbaceous borders to conifer beds, rose gardens to woodland clearings help you plan the garden of your choice. You don’t have to be a dedicated gardener to create a beautiful garden; The Well-Planned Garden guides you through every step of the way, in the same way that a good cook book guides the inexperienced chef.
There are twelve self-contained chapters, each concentrating on a main feature, with four variations. The chapter begins with a list of ingredients — the plants, tools, fertilizers and composts you will need, season by season, for your first year’s gardening. Each chapter then takes you through the year with detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to plant, when to prune, how to prepare individual plants for winter… Soil preparation, weeding, watering and pest control are all discussed thoroughly in each individual context. Additional instructions are also given for continuing care over subsequent years.
The Well-Planned Garden contains a host of ideas for every taste; it is an essential source of both inspiration and practical advice to the beginner and experienced gardener alike.”
