Starting from scratch Designing, Preparing and Planting a New Garden and Renovating a Derelict Garden. Ideal information and simple advice on gardening techniques for those people taking on a new garden and for those to whom gardening is new. Based upon the experience and expertise of author, writer, journalist and tele-personality Peter Seabrook and presented by him with the help and technical knowledge of broadcaster and writer, Anne Swithinbank. Some people’s ‘new’ garden will be bare earth, just as the builder left the housing estate. The logical approach to design, the purchase of tools and initial planting and laying a lawn is shown in full detail. In the second half, those people who are buying an established garden, which is perhaps a little overgrown, will be guided as to their best long term approach. Anne and Peter show how to tackle scores of jobs quickly and simply and show the long-term benefits of a greenhouse.
