Gardeners' World, Gardening from Berryfields by Monty Don

Review

"Gardening from Berryfields" is invaluable to all gardeners and, in particular, to the viewers of BBC2's "Gardeners' World". Using the main projects undertaken at Berryfields (the "Gardeners' World" garden), the book guides the reader through a year of gardening, giving practical advice so that they can use Berryfields as a template for managing their own. Now available in paperback, the book cleverly distils all the information that is packed into each episode of "Gardeners' World" and draws on the immense horticultural experience of Monty Don, the show's main presenter. The book is divided into 13 chapters covering subjects, such as the kitchen garden, courtyard garden, dry garden, herb garden, mixed borders, pond, orchard, and wildflower meadow. Monty is a gardening columnist with the "Observer", has presented several gardening programmes and written numerous books on the subject.

The Weekend Gardener by Monty Don

Review

Though it looks as if Monty Don has been holding on to Alan Titchmarsh's coattail, he is one of the most experienced and respected gardeners in the UK. Monty has a two-acre garden in Herefordshire, where he lives with his wife Sarah and their three children. He particularly loves his spring garden, which is filled with flowers from February to late May What better person to advise on how to keep that garden maintained when time is at a premium and the weekend is the only time for attending to the garden at home.
