Combining practical advice with stunning photography, The Complete Gardener shows gardeners how to create a self sustainable, environmentally friendly garden for the 21st century, by making the most of the available natural resources to grow organic fruits and vegetables, as well as beautiful plants and flowers. Monty Don's personal chronicle of a year in his garden, including both successes and failures, shows how an organic lifestyle can be adopted by anyone, and organic gardening can be practiced in a yard of any size.

A prolific journalist and leading garden writer, Monty Don is the gardening correspondent for several television shows and newspapers. He has published several successful gardening books including Fork to Fork, Urban Jungle, and The Sensuous Garden.From Booklist:
At a large, but not unmanageable, site in the English countryside, Don reigns over a lush and diverse garden of his own creation. Undaunted by having to start from scratch, he planned, then planted, areas for fruits and vegetables, flowers and topiary, hedges and herbs and now shares his hard-won knowledge through detailed but highly conversant text and luscious and artistic photography by Ari Ashley. From planning to construction, planting to composting, Don covers virtually every aspect of garden design, installation, and management with a predilection toward environmentally friendly practices. Though his personal garden is located in England, the basic and comprehensive information he shares can be applied to nearly any garden anywhere. With an intimate style and infectious enthusiasm, Don encourages the home gardener to view his or her domain as an outlet for creativity and imagination. This elegantly designed and beautifully produced book is as practical as it is aesthetically pleasing--qualities not unlike Don's garden. Carol Haggas
