    Even great gardeners like Monty Don are always learning and always experimenting. The Complete Gardener brings you right up to date on how Monty gardens today. This extensively revised new edition covers what Monty believes are the most important aspects of gardening today.

    Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned gardener, it’s time to get your green-fingered hands dirty!

    A comprehensive gardening guide that no gardener should be without:

    • An introductory chapter that explains the essentials of organic gardening practice
    • A structure chapter that shows you how to define space in your garden with hard landscaping and natural options, such as trees, hedges, and topiary
    • Discover all different types of flowering plants explaining how to design with them, combine, plant, and care for them
    • How to grow fruits and vegetables with in-depth crop-by-crop explanations and which tried-and-tested varieties to choose from

    Packed with beautiful illustrations and practical gardening tips, Monty reveals the secrets of growing vegetables, fruits, flowers, and herbs while respecting the needs of the environment. He covers everything from planning the space and crop rotation to pruning fruit canes and staking peas. Join Monty in his garden at Long Meadow! Over half of the photos included in this updated edition were shot at his renowned personal garden over the course of a year.

    Discover how he created this beautiful garden, and how you can do the same in your own. Although organic techniques have always been at the core of his practice, this new edition has a new emphasis on gardening for wildlife and the impact of global warming on the garden. This is a go-to guide for anyone seeking Monty’s gardening advice and the perfect gift for any gardener, regardless of their experience or budget.
