Synopsis

Have you ever thought how useful it would be to have a pocket-sized book of gardening advice to take outside with you into the garden? Ever looked at a plant infected with white fly and wondered what to do? Well then this is the book for you. Keep Calm and Pot On is crammed full of practical advice in the form of tips and techniques as well as being filled with humorous quotes to keep you amused whilst waiting for that inevitable rain cloud to clear. The useful tips and invaluable techniques will provide an immediate answer to many of your gardening queries, without you having to search a large tome once you step back indoors. Learn how to deadhead a rose to ensure a successful season of bloom the following year, or the ideal place to plant a sunshine-loving flower. Assure that your hard work pays off by using the essential techniques in the book to promote continued growth and guarantee that your plot, however small, always looks at its best. This helpful little book is also filled with witty quotations that are taken from both contemporary and historical sources, including films, essays, novels and various accomplished gardeners. Those quoted include Anna Pavord, Alice B. Toklas, Monty Don, Harold Epstein, Margaret Atwood and many more. Featuring funny and inspiring anecdotes, wry truths, useful advice and timeless wisdom, this neat book confirms itself as the perfect aide for any gardener.
