Décor & Gardening
Two blooming good books for gardeners
We’re huge fans of The Home Gardener Series … jolly useful books that help us design, plan, plant and improve our gardens. The latest two we’ve added to our collection are both by David Squire (who lists his interests as native plants, bee-keeping and dogs … how fabulous).
Container Gardening shows the best container plant combos, and gives step-by-step directions. There’s a brilliant plan for creating a scented patio and lovely tips for hanging baskets. A great buy for those with small gardens, or just a tiny spot on a veranda.
Pruning … roses, grape vines, apple trees, hydrangeas … if they need pruning, this guide shows you how. There’s also directions on how to prune to create an arch or tunnel as well as topiary ideas (horse’s head in the garden, anyone?).
