There's are lots of very pleasing things about this book:
It's size and shape (a hardback that's ideal for browsing, not too big, not too weighty).
It's photo-heavy content - so many enticing pictures.
& the mix of the inspirational and the practical. Gardens featured include an allotment on a shed roof, a garden among the chimney pots of a Fitzrovia townhouse, a garden made in the back of an open truck, a garden on the front steps of a house, plus more traditional back gardens. There's even a garden created on a river barge. In fact, it's an orchard, complete with apple and quince trees, and nestling among them are herbs, strawberries, tomatoes and a couple of beehives. (Oh, how I'd love my own beehive.)
The gardeners themselves are featured, which is always interesting as you want to get to know the words from the people who makes these green spaces. They're creative spirits & deserve a hearing.
There're various ideas I'm taking from this book - planting thyme between cracks in paving is one. Love that idea, as the thyme will spread and you'll get a beautiful scent underfoot. There're also instructions on how to make a hanging alpine strawberry basket. Mmm, love that, and hanging baskets would keep the berries out of reach of those Evil Slugs.
'my little veg plot' (yup, the title is in lower case) is published by Pavilion, and It's a keeper. Why not invest in a copy?
Moved from a garden-less city flat in the South West to a Yorkshire village in 2016. I now have a garden ... of sorts.
