The Royal Horticultural Society's Step-by-step Gardening Techniques by Christopher Brickell
This guide to all aspects of gardening care and maintenance explains in easily understood text and clear diagrams how to make gardening both a success and a pleasure. Over 1200 researched illustrations, many in step-by-step sequence, give authoritative guidance on how to grow vegetables, fruit and flowers, how to care for lawns, how to prune roses, shrubs and other plants, and how to propagate plants. There is practical advice on all aspects of garden care and maintenance, including growing under glass, weed control, and the continuing battle against pests and diseases. Throughout, the emphasis is on the needs of ordinary, everyday gardeners with limited time, space and money.
