Independendent Gardening Columnist Emma Townshend has a dream.

Though some of you will already know, for those that don’t, I have a new book out.

Plans for Small Gardens aims to encourage each and every novice garden owner whose heart sinks when they look out of the window upon their own small patch of land.

The book covers ten projects, covering varying garden styles, including plans, drawings, shopping lists and techniques to arm, encourage and hold the hand of anyone wanting to create and build a welcoming spot to garden, play, or simply enjoy a gin and tonic outside their own back door.

And I’m delighted to say, on the whole, it seems to be going down quite well. At the risk of sounding like an Oscars speech, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank those who’ve written such lovely things about the book, my clients, and of course the wonderful photographer of the book, the hugely talented Rachel Warne.

Just this weekend, I was thrilled and honoured to read Emma Townshend’s piece in the Independent about ‘Plans’. If you’ve a mo, feel free to read it here

And if you’d like a copy, then I hope you might find it in your local library, or of course you can buy it here at amazon
