This reference book gives photographic explanations of every gardening technique and has more than 500 separate step-by-step sequences. Written by a team of international experts over three years, its range and depth illustrates authoritative and up-to-date practical gardening skills from simple to advanced. There are four major sections. Part one covers all the different plant groups and areas of the garden, advising on the uses of the plants, soil preparation, planting, maintenance, pruning and propagation. The chapters include: ornamental trees and shrubs, climbers, the rose garden, perennials, annuals and biennials, the rock garden, the water garden, cacti, the herb and vegetable gardens and fruit. Part two gets to grips with the practicalities of tools and equipment, greenhouses and frames, and garden structures and surfaces. Part three covers successful cultivation and propagation techniques by looking at the climate and how to protect plants, soil types and fertilizers, treating pests and diseases - including organic methods of treatment alongside conventional or chemical controls, plant problems, and dealing with weeds. Part four contains seasonal reminders, and a glossary and index which includes common names.
