The latest from Kenneth Cox, Scotland's best selling garden writer:

GARDENING MADE SIMPLE, The Glendoick Guide for Beginner Gardeners, is a back-to-basics look at everything, from tackling weeds to raising tasty vegetables. It is aimed particularly at Scotland and the northern half of England, where the climate can be particularly fickle.

The book contains lots of clear and simple advice on choosing plants, preparing the soil and dealing with tricky growing conditions. Ken avoids scientific jargon and latin plant names where possible to try and make gardening less of a mystery.

100 pages full colour paperback.
