Synopsis

A Guide to what not to do in your garden. Gardening is widely regarded as one of life's great joys. However, you might not feel that way if you pay too much attention to the experts: every garden magazine and newspaper relentlessly publishes hectoring instructions telling you what you must do in your garden this week or this month, to the point where your garden can become a source of constant stress or wasted energy. Rather than add to the pile of suggested drudgery, this book is instead dedicated to relieving you of pointless and unnecessary garden work, and suggests easy and pleasant ways to look after your little patch of paradise.

Together with her husband, Charles Hawes, Anne has spent over 25 years creating the inspirational garden at Veddw House in Monmouthshire - it has been featured on Alan Titchmarsh's Love Your Garden and Escape to the Country as well as on German and French television. She has appeared on television as a judge in the series Britain's Best Home and Garden on Channel 5 and was included in a list of the most influential British gardeners in the Telegraph, January 2012. Her first book, The Bad-Tempered Gardener, was published by Frances Lincoln and has been called a 'best seller' by the Daily Mail. She describes herself 'a thorn in the flesh of the garden world'.

#FoylesFive: Celebrating Beer
23/07/2017
