"This is an excellent book for someone new to gardening. It provides an overview of the tasks to perform when designing a border - from checking soil type, to selecting and positioning the plants themselves, to guidance on planting and maintenance.
This is an endearing read but one that left me wishing for a larger tome. For someone just starting out however, this book would make a satisfying purchase."
