The Gardener's Years is a practical guide to gardening reflecting the natural cycle of the year. The years is divided into nine seasons, with the beginning of each marked by an easily observed natural signal - e.g. the appearance of snowdrop flowers for pre-spring, of ripe elderberries for early autumn. Thus each season can be defined accurately, no matter how far north or south, now sheltered or exposed a garden is; and all gardeners, wherever they live, can be certain of planting their bulbs or pruning their roses at precisely the right time, no matter how 'unseasonal' the weather in any particular year. Comprehensive practical sections give detailed step-by-step instructions for seasonal garden tasks, with clear illustrations showing exactly how to carry them out. A final chapter outlines basic garden jobs and techniques, such as soil preparation, planting and how to encourage natural predators.
