About this book

How to be a Gardener is the BBC's most ambitious gardening project ever. Led by Alan Titchmarsh it includes eight hours of primetime television and two major hardback books. There's no great mystery to being a successful gardener - most of it is just plain common sense - but an appreciation of the natural world at work in our gardens will certainly help. The culmination of years of experience, Alan has distilled his knowledge and passion for the subject into the two volumes of How to be a Gardener. In Book 1 he sets out the basic principles of gardening and in Book 2 he builds on this with expert advice on planting and design. Both books stand alone but together they provide a complete reference manual for any garden owner.

'I want you to get a feel for use all your senses - touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing - to make you a good gardener.' Alan Titchmarsh
