Explaining how to work with nature rather than against it, this book discusses how a garden works in terms of the life of plants and animals, and their interactions. The topics include how the soil is formed, how plants grow and the effects of animals on them, and practical and detailed advice is provided on improving the soil, pollination, pest control and plant propagation. The text is supported by colour illustrations. Geoff Hamilton presents BBC TV's 'Gardener's World' and is the author of many gardening books. Dr Owen is the author of 'Garden Life' and 'The Ecology of a Garden'.
