No Time to Garden: The Half Hour Gardener

by Anne Swithinbank (Author), Mark Bolton (Photographer), Anne Swithinbank (Author), Mark Bolton (Photographer)


In today's increasingly busy world, even the keenest gardeners may often have trouble fitting in more than the odd half hour to cultivate their plot. This volume demonstrates how you can create or maintain a beautiful garden, large or small, even if you are only able - or only want - to work on it for short periods of time. It tells you how to plan and use time in the garden most effectively, where to direct effort for best results, and how essential work can be fitted into easy half-hour timeslots. It describes 20 creative garden projects (such as making a small herb garden, creating a colourful border or planting a container), none of which takes more than 30 minutes. There is also a catalogue of over 100 best-value decorative plants that largely look after themselves
