From the Back Cover:

The best gardening is experimental as well as ephemeral, Christopher Lloyd writes. Among the great joys of gardening, as this book demonstrates, are changing one's mind, striking out in new directions, and trying something new. In short, Lloyd encourages all gardeners to be adventurous and offers ways to make new and exciting such familiar chores as weeding, taking cuttings, reseeding, and pruning roots and branches. Both the neophyte and the experienced gardener will benefit from Lloyd's advice and inspiration. (6 X 9, 256 pages, b&w photos, diagrams)

About the Author:

CHRISTOPHER LLOYD OBE was among the best informed, liveliest, most worthwhile gardening writers of our time and the author of a host of classics. He spent years lovingly developing and refining his celebrated gardens at Great Dixter in Sussex. Throughout his career he was unparalleled in gardening journalism, writing for many publications from COUNTRY LIFE to the GUARDIAN. In 1979 the Royal Horticultural Society conferred on him its highest honour, the VICTORIA MEDAL OF HONOUR. He received the OBE for services to horticulture in 2000, and he died in 2006.

Fergus Garrett, Head Gardener at Great Dixter, first worked at the Beth Chatto Gardens as a student, over twenty years ago, and has remained a close friend of Beth's ever since.
