A city garden need not be a dusty square of cracked concrete and a few scraggy bushes struggling against giant weeds. In this book, written to accompany a Channel 4 gardening series, Matt James - The Urban Gardener - leads a call to arms for urbanites everywhere: Green the city, hide the flat, featureless grey.

About the author (2003)

Matt James is the fresh new face of contemporary gardening and star of the hit Channel 4 series The City Gardener. His gardening career began as a teenager working on a small farm, and he then went on to study at various horticultural colleges and work at nurseries. Matt was honoured in 2000 as Londoner of the Year in the field of Environment and Regeneration, in recognition of his work establishing a successful circuit of Farmers' Markets in the capital. Matt's greatest passion as a gardener is trees – he is a genuine, 21st-century tree hugger and has made it his mission in life to get as many cityfolk as possible planting trees again!
