About the Author:

Adam the Gardener was drawn by Cyril Cowell, a much loved illustrator of the 1940s and 1950s who specialised in drawing animals and the natural world, especially for children's books (including Enid Blyton). It was written by Morley Adams, a journalist who was also credited with popularising the crossword in Britain. Alys Fowler is a presenter on Gardeners' World, has her own series, The Edible Garden, and has written a book of the same name.

Review:

"I have quite fallen for Adam -- his stylish waistcoat, encyclopaedic knowledge and use for everything -- and constantly find myself thinking 'What Would Adam Do?' as I go about my daily gardening business." * Alys Fowler * "The clarity of delivery means Adam is still a mine of useful information... This chunky little volume has already paid for itself with advice about how to make-do-and-mend." * The Lady * "This chunky little volume has already paid for itself with advice about how to make-do-and-mend - an adjustable tool handle has already prolonged the life of my grandmother's Elwell half-moon edging spade, for which I will be eternally grateful." * The Lady *
