Gardening School is a complete resource for novice and intermediate gardeners who want to formalize their knowledge and take their skills to the next level. It is the perfect companion for anyone taking, or considering taking, a horticultural diploma. The book opens with two sections providing useful background information plants and gardens, such as understanding plant taxonomy.
The following six sections focus on practical guidelines on topics such as planting, pruning, problem solving, growing fruit, and arranging plants. The book concludes with a 32-page section, printed in one colour on a woodfree stock, of plant lists, providing detailed information and growing guidelines for common plant genera and species.
Packed with hands-on guidance, always underpinned with a sound theoretical understanding, Gardening School will equip readers with a foundation in horticulture and all the skills they need to maximise their gardening potential.
