The very best of Alan Titchmarsh's gardening writing taken from his 20 years as a columnist with BBC Gardeners' World magazine.
Alan Titchmarsh has been the most popular contributor to Gardeners' World magazine for the last twenty years.This collection of his very best columns, demonstrates just why he is regularly voted the readers' favourite. His brilliant writings are, in turn, practical - just how far back should we prune our roses - opinionated - I always rail at people who go out on a Sunday afternoon to tidy their gardens. I mean, a garden is not a sock drawer - cheeky - I have a theory that gardeners grow to look like their soil and wistful - You've got to be a bit of a dreamer to get the most out of your garden.
So lay down your trowel, take off your wellies, sit back and enjoy a bit of quintessential Titchmarsh.
