    Description: Thoughtful Gardening is based on Robin Lane Fox's own selection from his widely admired FT column, which he has rewritten and amplified with new chapters to take readers on a highly enjoyable journey through each season of the gardening year. It draws on his lifetime of practical gardening, including his years as Garden Master of New College, Oxford, and contains many memories of fellow gardeners, from Christopher Lloyd to Nancy Lancaster. The book is essential reading for anyone setting out on a new garden or taking stock of one. It takes a critical look at fashions of the moment and is full of advice, ranging from problems with badgers to how to take root-cuttings or choose flowering trees, as well as examples of gardens at home and abroad which Robin Lane Fox has visited over many years. Thoughtful Gardening combines a principled view of the craft of gardening with dozens of new ideas for planting and visiting, and touching reminders of the power of literature and art to deepen what we see and realize in gardens of our own.

The Science Of Gardening


Category: Gardening
Description: Most gardening books deal with the how of gardening - how to prune roses, take cuttings or control diseases. This approach means you have to follow rules and instructions which are easy to forget or misunderstand. A complementary approach is to understand why plants respond to pruning, why only some plant shoots produce roots when taken as cuttings and why crop rotation can help manage disease in the vegetable garden.
