Creating your first garden can be a daunting task: Where do I begin?; what plants will grow in my soil?; how do I design a border or build and ornamental pond? Professor Stefan Buczaki takes the fear and confusion out of gardening and shows how enjoyable it can be. Assuming no knowledge whatsoever, he guides you through every stage of the process from deciding what type of garden you want to keeping your lawn in good condition.
