Diary of a Modern Country Gardener by Tamsin Westhorpe
Written by a hard-working horticulturalist for fellow gardeners, the aim of this diary is to jog people's memories, share plant stories, demystify gardening and most importantly make the reader smile. You'll find a personal year-long diary of gardening along with favourite seasonal plants, timely reminders and entertaining tales of moving sheep, visiting the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and speaking at garden clubs.
Tamsin's open garden is at the heart of a working farm, so her book reflects the twists and turns of the countryside. For anyone about to embark on a life in the country, or whose town garden is never tidy and who wonders how the professionals do it, it's a must read. Pick up tips on how to keep warm whilst gardening, get rid of chilblains and grow seasonal food from someone who lives, breathes and eats country gardening. Hardback, 248 pages, 22 x 16 cm.
