Gardening is enjoying renewed popularity as more and more people are choosing to grow plants, flowers and vegetables in gardens, allotments and unused land everywhere. However the amount of work involved in preparing and maintaining a plot can be daunting, especially for those who don't have the time or the physical ability to spend hours digging. Here Alan and Gill Bridgewater explain how to garden successfully with the minimum amount of digging and weeding. The advice given includes how to build raised beds, building up layers of soil with mushroom compost, using plastic sheeting to retain heat, covering the weeds with a mulch and protecting growing plants with nets. The text is thoroughly practical and advocates using organic methods where possible. This is a must for busy gardeners everywhere. It is ideal for first time gardeners who want to learn the basics. It is perfect for busy and older gardeners looking for simple, no-nonsense gardening methods.
