Gardening is for everyone – a garden offers an abundance of pleasure, relaxation, food and a chance to exercise your artistic talents – all without ever having to leave home!
There is lots to do through all four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Space is no object. Even if you don’t have a garden, you can grow things on a windowsill, put a few pots by the front (or back) door, or plant a hanging basket.
Even if it’s no more than a pot of mint or basil in the kitchen, you can always grow something. And if you have a bit of a garden at the back or front of the house, then you have the start of something that can be just a hobby or the beginning of a life-long passion!
The ideas shown in this book can be followed exactly, or act as a starting point for your own creativity. Choose your own favourite flowers and other plants and feel free to adapt the plans and the colour schemes to suit yourself. It’s your garden – enjoy it to the full!
