Knave of Spades Summary


Knave of Spades: Growing Pains of a Gardener by Alan Titchmarsh

From gardener's apprentice to favourite TV presenter - how did it all begin?
When Alan left school at fifteen little was expected of him. But in the ancient greenhouses of the local nursery Mrs T's little lad found his spiritual home, learning his trade and the strange ways of human nature.
But the comfort and familiarity of his home in the Yorkshire Dales would soon be left behind as he journeyed south to college and then to Kew Gardens. Spells as a teacher and editor followed, until fate took a hand when he landed a job on BBC's Nationwide as their gardening presenter. His childhood dream of inheriting the mantle of gardening god Percy Thrower was beginning to come true...
In KNAVE OF SPADES Alan Titchmarsh shows us just why he has become not only our favourite gardener, but a popular writer and broadcaster too.
