About this book

What are the key tasks for each month that the time-pressed flower gardener should do to ensure success? Which plants should you grow and which varieties will guarantee colour, interest and fragrance throughout the year? And what are the most important things you need to know to keep your garden healthy, pest-free, bountiful and beautiful? Pithy, practical and purposeful – for anyone who loves their plot but is forced to garden in snatched moments – this handy diary, together with its sister volumes The Ten-Minute Gardener's Fruit- Growing Diary and The Ten-Minute Gardener's Vegetable-Growing Diary, is full of tried-and-tested tips from a seasoned old hand, and is the perfect answer to a prayer.
