The science of gardening : discover how your garden really grows / Dr. Stuart Farrimond.

Farrimond, Stuart, (author.).


"The world of gardening can be a mystifying place, with so many instructions to follow and often little explanation as to why. Dr. Stuart Farrimond casts his scientific eye over a typical year in the garden to answer all the horticultural questions you've ever wanted the answer to. From hands-on, practical advice, to an exploration of the mental health benefits of gardening, while also covering topics such as the positive impact gardening can have on the earth during a time of climate crisis in between, Science of Gardening debunks myths and reveals the latest science only taught at horticultural college"-- Provided by publisher
