My Real Garden Summary

My Real Garden: Hacks, tips and tricks from over 100 people who love to get their hands dirty by Ann-Marie Powell

This is your opportunity to peep over the fence into the plant-filled world of hundreds of hand-on gardeners. A year since the Covid-19 lockdown began in the UK, TV gardening presenter and RHS Chelsea award winner Ann-Marie Powell releases a unique community book sharing the passions, successes (and failures!), and highs (and lows!) of gardening during lockdown. Coming together from across the globe, My Real Garden features front line workers who used their plots to relax, parents who turned their gardens into outside classrooms, hobby gardeners who are now planning a career change to horticulture, and a whole lot of joy. Each voice is united in the hope to encourage you to pick up a trowel and experience the energy, vitality and emotional wellbeing that gardening brought them in the most difficult of circumstances. Within the 224 pages you'll find inspiration, personal stories, make-do-and-mend ideas, ways to have fun in the garden and so much more. So if you're a green-fingered novice or a seasoned gardener in need of inspiration, the very special people in this book have top tricks and hacks from their plots to share with you. Some of the profits will be donated to gardening charity, Greenfingers which creates inspiring gardens for children's hospices. This book really captures a very special kind of magic.
