Much-loved broadcaster and bestselling author Alan Titchmarsh has returned to his gardening roots as presenter of ITV1's Love Your Garden. In this hugely popular show, Alan visits some of Britain's most beautiful domestic gardens, and shows us how to recreate the look ourselves, with minimum fuss. On each visit, he also helps out with any problems areas, and suggest ways to improve the design, while his team of co-presenters, Matt James, Valentine Warner, Charlotte Uhlenbrouk and Laetitia Maklouf, are on hand with advice on design, growing your own food, wildlife and craft. In this essential accompanying book, Alan looks back on all twelve gardens we saw in the first series, which span across a wide variety of styles from a cottage garden, a country garden and a city garden through to a seaside garden and a formal garden. He takes us through the practical projects, step by step - showing us how to build a pond or create a wildlife area - and includes the ideas offered by his co-presenters.
Alan also explores each theme in greater depth, with extra hints and tips on everything from garden design to choosing the right plants, providing a stand-alone practical handbook to be enjoyed by gardener of all levels, and anybody who wants to explore the joys of outdoor living.
