About this book

New edition of this best-selling, all-in-one gardening book by Alan Titchmarsh, fully revised and updated to reflect an organic approach to gardening. Includes tips on everything from growing plants in inhospitable conditions to making pools and rock gardens, as well as lots of suggestions to combat pests and weeds.

Twenty years after it was first published, Alan Titchmarsh's "The Complete Supergardener" is as pertinent now as it was then. And Alan Titchmarsh's popularity is as strong as it ever was and he still draws crowds wherever he goes. Maybe older and richer but still one of the best-loved television presenters, down-to-earth and keen to educate everyone in the wonders of gardening. Fully updated and revised to include modern-day cultivars and current organic trends, it is the perfect introduction for any new gardener, garden owner or old hand looking for sensible, knowledgeable advice. From design to seed sowing, ponds to pergolas, Alan Titchmarsh covers all aspects in his cheerful, inimitable style, accompanied by attractive colour photographs throughout. Finding the right plant for the right place, growing vegetables, planting bulbs, lawn care and more makes this an invaluable reference for all gardeners and its easy lay-out ensures a quick answer to any garden query. A must for all gardeners and, just because you may have the original edition, not to be missed for its new, updated content, all of which is invaluable for its Titchmarsh tips. - Lucy Watson
