This compact little book promises to answer the 1000 most-asked questions that can frustrate all gardeners alike. From the basic: knowing how to identify your soil type, choice of tools, buying plants, seeds versus seedlings; to the thorny problems of dealing with chronic pests and diseases, plants for difficult places, designing and re-designing, addressing garden needs in an eco-friendly way; and the finer details of perfect compost making, pruning and propagation. Written by one of the BBC's Gardeners' Question Time panellists and researchers, Daphne Ledward has gathered together the gardening questions that she receives year after year.
