Gardening in containers

It would be daft not to give a mention to this new book. Well actually it is not that new. It was supposed to be published last March, and it turns out that it was. I expected to get a copy of it when it was published but I didn’t so, being an eternal optimist, I assumed it was pulped! Then I was asked to give a talk on container gardening because of the book and the penny dropped. I investigated and apparently my author’s copy went missing in the post. But don’t they all say that! I am still waiting but Amazon did the job.

You may have guessed that I had something to do with the book and I did – I wrote it. I guess they didn’t put my name on the front in case it put people off! (It is the style of the series not to put the author on the front.)

It is one of a new series of DK guides that aim to give simple and concise information for new gardeners in particular. A dozen or so titles have been published in the series so far.

Lots of people grow flowers in containers and I hope that if people buy the book (and read it) they will be able to avoid some common pitfalls.

Priced at £9.99 they are affordable and good value.
