About the Author:

Ken Thompson was for twenty years a lecturer in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield. He writes regularly on gardening for the Daily Telegraph. His previous book, Where Do Camels Belong? (Profile, 2014), was described as `lively and punchy' by the Sunday Times.

Review:

'A delight ... if you have simply had enough of people refusing to take gardening seriously, I suggest you buy The Sceptical Gardener' * The Spectator * 'Packed with good, common-sense gardening advice gleaned from years of tending his own patch, it's also very funny' * Waitrose Weekend *
