Garden design & planning

A guide to creating a modern outdoor space that provides us with the materials we need to eat, be creative, learn and get the most out of our garden.

'Frances Tophill is not only a qualified horticulturalist but is fast becoming the fresh new face of television gardening.' Daily Mail

We no longer just want to garden, we want to engage with the land; the plants in it, the animals, insects and even the fungi. The Modern Gardener isn't just about creating a space that simply looks visually stunning, but about encouraging wildlife, reducing our carbon footprint and making our outdoor and indoor space more useful in all areas of our lives.

As well as how to select and grow your plants, there is also information for how to design your garden alongside a variety of plant-based recipes - from delicious drinks to natural dyes - that can easily be made at home.
