Conventional wisdom is difficult to question, even when it is misguided and contains many contradictions. Gardening has its share of such `myths' - some with discernible origins in history, others that have become established for no obvious reason - and they often obscure simpler and easier methods
of working. This delightfully illustrated book reveals how common sense triumphs and crops are more successful when these `rules' are overturned.

A fascinating but practical book that will save the seasoned gardener time and give new gardeners heart.

These days, garden writing based on a solid career's worth of practical experience is rare indeed. Therein lies the value of this thought-provoking little book. -- Rory Dusoir * Gardens Illustrated *
"Beginners and experienced gardeners alike can only benefit from Charles' enthusiastic and deep understanding of what plants really need." * The Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm Blog *
"It has been proven untrue that watering in sunlight damages leaves. It is also untrue that rhubarb leaves and citrus peel cannot be composted, the latter may just take a while to decay. All this and much more makes for an entertaining and instructive read." -- Mary Davies * The Irish Garden *
"For anyone who grows edibles or for that matter gardens intensively I would recommend this book." -- Helen Jonstone * The Patient Gardener *
There's enough detail here to make a real difference to your garden, but it's cleverly broken down into bite-sized chunks with illustrations, so it never feels hard-going. * The English Garden *
