Gardening at Longmeadow
‘The nation’s favourite gardener’ – Guardian
‘There was nothing here that could possibly be described as a garden. But beneath years of neglect was a blank canvas that I could fill with the garden of my dreams…’
Monty Don invites you into Longmeadow, a place that has become synonymous with Gardener’s World, to show how he creates and tends his own garden, and how you can bring some of that same magic to our own.
Following the cycle of the seasons, Gardening at Longmeadow is a year-long diary of Monty’s gardening wisdom: from the earliest snowdrops of January and the first splashes of colour in the Spring Garden, to the electric summer displays of the Jewel Garden and the autumn harvest in the orchard. Alongside his rich, personal experiences at Longmeadow, Monty describes the individual plants coming into their own in the floral and vegetable gardens and talks you through key tasks, from composting and lawn maintenance to topiary clipping and fruit pruning. The result is a very personal account of failure, bewilderment and surprise, as well as endless pleasure and some success over the course of a gardening year.
With beautiful photography throughout, Gardening at Longmeadow is an essential book for gardening enthusiasts of all skill levels. It will inspire you to achieve a balanced, healthy garden of your own, that’s spilling with produce and full colour all year round.
