I have written many gardening books but this is the distillation of 50 years of gardening experience. It has all the tips and essential pieces of knowledge that enable you to make your garden grow well, and it also shares my view that gardening is the secret to living well too.

Unrivalled gardening wisdom from Monty Don, including essential tips, knowledge and musings from his 50 years of gardening experience.

Written as he talks, this is Monty Don right beside you in the garden, challenging norms and sharing advice. Discover Monty's thoughts and garden ideas around nature, seasons, colour, design, pests, flowering shrubs, containers, and much more.

Read about the month-by month jobs he does in his own garden that he hopes are relevant to you.

Monty's intimate and lyrical writing is accompanied by photos of his garden, showing areas rarely seen on television. This is the perfect gift for the gardener in your life.

“Monty Don - what more is there to say?”

As a huge fan of Gardeners World, this book was a must for me. Practical advice from someone who knows. I’ve got several of Monty’s books now and they never disappoint. Good coffee table book.
