Product Information

I love the idea of having a large, sprawling garden but for now I have to be a bit more small-scale – this book was perfect inspiration, and I came away with it feeling like it’s fun to be able to come up with solutions for a smaller space rather than a chore which I think is the best thing a book like this could’ve done. It also has lots of pictures which is always my favourite part of any gardening book.
