Newbie Gardener Guide

I knew after reading Food Security for the Faint of Heart I was in for a treat with Gardening for the Faint of Heart.

Interspersed with lots of her typical humour, Robin Wheeler has another winner on her hands. I’m a newbie, Bumbling Gardener this year, so her advice on which beginner steps to try and which advanced activities to avoid were really helpful. Her style is calming, pragmatic and entertaining and the book is absolutely crammed with easy to read gardening info.

My favourite chapter was Edible Landscape, a window into seeing your whole yard for it’s food and fruit-bearing potential.

I must say I NEVER thought I’d read a gardening book at all, let alone for before bed relaxation.
