Pippa Greenwood's Gardening Year: The Busy Gardener's Essential Month-by-month Guide

Review

A hugely practical month-by-month guide to getting the most from your garden from the least time and effort. How to have a gorgeous garden when you've got very little time to attend to it. The secret is to know the essential jobs for each month so that you get maximum benefit from the time you can spend on your plot. Pippa Greenwood takes you through the gardening year - when to sow and plant, how to save time on weeding later by mulching in the spring, whether it's worth deadheading or would your time be better spent fertilising the lawn or watering newly planted pots. Each garden area - flower beds, lawn, trees and shrubs, pond and furniture - is highlighted so that you can see in an instant what needs your attention and what can safely be left. Illustrated with inspiring colour photographs and practical line drawings, the book is easy to use and draws on Pippa's extensive knowledge of practical gardening for busy people.

Pippa's Organic Kitchen Garden by Pippa Greenwood

Review

We follow the creation of Pippa's kitchen garden from the early stages where she plans and digs the plot to create the right layout to the successful cultivation of vegetables, fruits and herbs. The plan that Pippa devised is illustrated to show the designated sections for each type of plant she gives useful tips for choosing a plot. A gentle slope that catches the sunshine is perfect. This first section goes on to give advice on preparing and clearing the site of weeds and debris, what is essential for fertile soil and how to naturally protect crops without chemicals. She also addresses the problem of pest and disease prevention, which can be a concern in a chemical-free kitchen garden.
