From the cover: MORE THAN ANY OTHER GARDEN WRITER, Geoff Hamilton understood what ordinary, busy people wanted in their gardens without having to outlay huge amounts of time or money. For over twenty years, through his gardening columns, books and television programmes, he used his personal experience to guide, to inspire -and sometimes to cajole his readers and viewers.
HERE, culled for the first time from over a thousand of his articles for the Daily Express, is the best of Geoff Hamilton: a superb blueprint that tells you exactly how and when to do what is most important in your garden. As Geoff knew, a timely reminder can make the difference between failure and success, and his articles were intended to be such reminders. With his unfailingly down-to-earth approach and infectious enthusiasm, he guides you through the months, giving advice based on his own extensive knowledge and tried-and-tested methods. Clearly laid out, with sections for each part of the garden, every month begins with a checklist of the key tasks, and includes step-by-step illustrations of the most important techniques, as well as descriptions of some of Geoff s favourite plants.
THE BOOK has the blessing of Lynda Hamilton vho, as his wife, shared Geoffs life at Barnsdale. She has written a preface explaining the importance to Geoff of an organic approach to gardening and his belief in the merits of natural weed and pest control, and has also contributed a very personal introduction to each month in which she reflects on their pattern of life at Barnsdale throughout the seasons.
THE DEEP LOVE OF GARDENING and wide expertise that gained Geoff such a following spring from these pages. But this is a book not just for the millions of Geoffs fans, it is also for anyone looking for a beautifully illustrated, honest-to-goodness guide to the most popular gardening skills.
