A timeless gardening classic by Christopher Lloyd, one of Britain's most highly respected plantsmen, updated for the 21st Century.

With a new foreword by Anna Pavord.

This is a classic work by a gardener who combines a passionate love of his subject with a critical intelligence and a good helping of wit.

The Well-Tempered Garden is packed with the sort of information keen gardeners crave - from planting, weeding and the pleasures of propagation to annuals, water lilies and vegetables.

Hailed as a masterpiece when it was first published, The Well-Tempered Garden is as fresh, enlightening and necessary for gardeners in the 21st Century as it was when it first appeared more than 40 years ago.
