The Reluctant Gardener

Author(s): Joanna Smith


An increasing number of home-owners are looking for low-effort ways of cultivating a great garden, and this little book is packed with tips for the lazy gardener who still wants to impress the neighbours. With hints on how to cut down on time spent weeding and watering, and how to get plants to look after themselves (by encouraging wildlife, companion planting, mulching etc.) this book will appeal to the 'no-fuss' gardener in all of us. Chapters include: Instant Fixes, The Art of Disguise, and, perhaps most attractively, 'Things to Do with a Glass of Wine in Your Hand'. Originally published in the UK, this book has been adapted by gardening writer Dennis Greville for a New Zealand readership.
