Sally Gregson ran Mill Cottage Plants nursery for over thirty years, having trained professionally at Hadlow College, Kent, and exhibited at the major flower shows, including Hampton Court Palace. With her husband, Peter, she opened the garden under the NGS Yellow Book scheme. She has written several gardening books and continues to lecture throughout the UK and abroad, as well as writing for national gardening magazines.
So I was very keen to see Sally’s new book and, after reading it, I can say that it’s delightful and will be of enormous use to both new and experienced gardeners. This book will be supremely useful to gardeners of all levels. I know it will always give me, and so many others, a feeling which Sally describes upon seeing the first bulb shoots in January: ‘simply joyous’.
