The Well-Tempered Garden Summary

The Well-Tempered Garden: The Timeless Classic That No Gardener Should Be Without by Christopher Lloyd

A timeless gardening classic by Christopher Lloyd, one of Britain's most highly respected plantsmen, updated for the 21st century. With a new foreword by Anna Pavord.

This is a classic work by a gardener who combines a passionate love of his subject with a critical intelligence and a good helping of wit. THE WELL-TEMPERED GARDEN is packed with the sort of information keen gardeners crave - from planting, weeding and the pleasures of propagation to annuals, water lilies and vegetables. Hailed as a masterpiece when it was first published, THE WELL-TEMPERED GARDEN is as fresh, enlightening and necessary for gardeners in the 21st century as it was when it first appeared more than 40 years ago.

The Well-Tempered Garden Reviews

It is THE gardening classic, as essential to every gardener as a sharp pair of secateurs or a good spade
If you want a chatty, opinionated and highly readable book, you can do no better than turn to Christopher Lloyd's classic, which is still in print after many years -- Alan Titchmarsh * WAITROSE WEEKEND *
The most inspiring gardening book of the later twentieth century * Royal Horticultural Society *
Packed with ideas you would never have thought of: observations you wish you had discovered yourself * Gardens Illustrated *
Christopher Lloyd's great classic, THE WELL-TEMPERED GARDEN, never disappoints me when I'm looking for inspiration ... Lloyd has a wonderful way of describing plants - I can't look at a rhododendron without calling to mind his description of the foliage as "lugubrious" * COUNTRY LIVING *
Packed with the sort of information gardeners crave - from planting and propagation to the pleasures of wild gardening in grass, and fruit and vegetable specialities. He writes with gusto, giving his opinions, his likes and dislikes firmly without worrying whether we agree or disagree with him * COUNTRY HOUSE AND HOME *
One of the definitive gardening books of the 20th century has been updated. When Christopher Lloyd, one of the UK's most respected plantsmen, wrote the book, he established himself as one of those rare breeds of garden writers who not only writes about plants, but writes what he feels and thinks about them too ... The book is far from "sanitised" - how refreshing! * WATER GARDENER *
