Curious Gardener's Almanac by Niall Edworthy
Book DescriptionThe Curious Gardener's Almanac contains over 1000 entries of remarkable information about flowers, vegetables, fruits, trees, herbs, insects, birds, water, soil, tools, composts, climate, recipes, gardens and gardeners, myths, superstitions, biodynamics..In short it is a collection as profuse and variegated as gardening itself. Woven into this wealth of knowledge are famous quotations, anecdotes, traditional sayings, lines of verse, and words of rural wisdom. The spirit and focus of the Almanac is British but the wider picture is international as so much of our gardens originated from overseas. Dry or dull information has no place in the almanac and its presentation is as appealing as the content.

Author Biography - Niall Edworthy
Writing under a variety of nom de plumes, Niall Edworthy has written over a dozen books covering a wide range of subjects from military history, biography and outdoor survival to general humour and sport. In 2002 Niall and his family swapped their London house with its tiny, paved north-facing terrace for a new home with a 'proper' garden at the foot of the South Downs. Niall's love affair with gardening thus began as an arranged marriage, but quickly blossomed into a passion. The more time Niall spent in the garden, however, the more he realised how little he knew about his new obsession. This book is the result of his quest for more knowledge of gardens and the wider natural environment.
