“In Your Winter Garden with Plews Garden Design” is a ‘gardening almanac for the 21st century’, with seasonal gardening tips, ideas and ‘how to’ hints to help you get more from your garden; or for you to tell others what to do.
Contents include: The folklore origins of many gardening traditions and festivals Essential garden planting and tool care Inspiration for winter planting both ornamental and edible Why winter isn’t a dead time in the garden Preparations for spring planting How to get the most out of your garden and enjoy doing so
Anyone who has read the Plews weekly blog will know the wide range of interests held by the author so will be reassured to know that anecdotes about plant history and folklore appear and the usual quirky comments about gardens and gardeners.
Added to all this there are plenty of photographs to inspire and amuse; along with some original illustrations. Oh, and a glossary to explain some of those odd terms that gardeners use and you have to pretend to understand... In short, we’ve aimed to create a book for you to read from cover to cover or dip into as the mood takes you. We will, of course, also bring you books for your Spring, Summer and Autumn garden as the seasons change.
I have had many types of garden from a window box to 5 acres with livestock; interested in 'ordinary gardens', biodiversity & most things in between.
