Are you frightened of your garden? Terrified of accidentally bringing death to a sap-filled friend? Put off by the overwhelming number of species of plants and their baffling Latin names? Whether your garden is a sprawling country plot or a kitchen windowsill, gardening is good for the mind, body and soul. Yet just the thought of picking up a pair of secateurs can strike fear into even the bravest of hearts, meaning we often don't make the most of our personal Edens.
Charlie's 'no fear' approach to gardening will help you find the easy path to beautiful borders and jampacked vegetable beds. A reassuring, simple-to-use handbook, No Fear Gardening is aimed at all budding gardeners and anyone who might be missing out simply because they don't know how and where to start. Whatever the reason, this book will answer all your questions. From digestible lists of what seeds to plant where, guides to pruning and how to cope with difficult spots to Charlie's favourite vegetables to grow (and, more importantly, eat) and essential pieces of kit, Charlie has condensed a wealth of gardening know-how into easy-to-follow and practical tips.
With its unique, liberating approach, No Fear Gardening will inspire you to dust the cobwebs off your watering can and get your garden blooming, whatever the weather or season.
