illustrated treasury of garden wisdom. If you're a fan of TV's longest running and most popular gardening programme, Gardener's World then you will love this book providing hints, fascinating and useful tips and wisdom to make the most 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 they'll 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.
