Sweet Peas for Summer Summary

Sweet Peas for Summer: How to Create a Garden in a Year by Laetitia Maklouf

For a decade Laetitia Maklouf did all her gardening in window boxes, a balcony and across every surface inside her flat. Finally, she moved into a house with her own garden. Beautifully illustrated throughout with Jill Mead's acclaimed photographs, Sweet Peas for Summer is Laetitia's own story of creating her first garden from scratch in a year and a bible for the gardening beginner. Irreverent, practical and funny, she sets out how to plan, plant and maintain a garden in ten easy steps. There are also over 100 plant recipes for spring, summer, autumn and winter, planting plans for every personality type and plenty of time left over for lounging on the lawn.
