Conventional wisdom is difficult to question, even when it is misguided and contains many contradictions.

Should you water in the evening? Do containers need pottery shards for drainage? Can cucumbers and tomatoes be grown together? Gardening has its share of such ‘myths’ – some with discernible origins in history, others that have become established for no obvious reason – and they often obscure simpler and easier methods of working.

Asking why gardeners are always told to do things a certain way, Charles Dowding clears up common garden misconceptions in this delightfully illustrated book. Wise words from a thoughtful practitioner, Charles reveals how common-sense triumphs and crops are more successful when these ‘rules’ are overturned.

Gardening Myths and Misconceptions is a fascinating but practical book that will save the seasoned gardener time and give new gardeners heart.
