About this deal

I bought a hundred 6ft chestnut stakes and quartered them (chestnut cleaves beautifully down the grain) to make 400.

For years, Britain's much-loved gardener Monty Don has been leading us down all kinds of garden paths to show us why green spaces are vital to our wellbeing and culture. Details of Monty’s promotional appearances (including book signings) can be found on the Events page.

Registered office address: Unit 34 Vulcan House Business Centre, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EF.Describing the magic of each area at different times of the year, Monty will explain the basics of what to do when and how to get the most from each plant. I particularly liked the relaxed feel to the book, maybe this is because the author is self-taught and has no hang-ups about how things should be done. But over the past ten years it has slowly evolved into a traditional, but essentially floral, cottage garden, filled with blowsy, soft colours but also containing fruit trees, rhubarb, gooseberries and some herbs all mingled in together.

In winter the structure is marked out by box hedging and 8 large Irish Yews – that all fitted in the boot of car when we first planted them in 1994! History When we bought this house in October 1991, the garden consisted of a 2 acre abandoned field out the back and a much smaller area in the front covered in builder’s rubble. Following the cycle of the seasons, Gardening at Longmeadow is a year-long diary of Monty's gardening wisdom: from the earliest snowdrops of January and the first splashes of colour in the Spring Garden, to the electric summer displays of the Jewel Garden and the autumn harvest in the orchard.The Paradise Garden is based on ideas of Islamic gardens, and came about after Don made a TV series and a book about the gardens of the Islamic world in 2017. I have grown vegetables since I was a small child and growing our own vegetables, herbs and fruit has always been an essential ingredient in the lives of Sarah and I. It is also the season of fruitfulness with the orchard providing over 50 different varieties of apples and the vegetable garden offering its final rich summer harvest.

The Spring garden was made to relish every possibility of the season and wave after wave of flower push forward culminating in mid May with the earliest species roses and the cow parsley which then takes over completely. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.While items such as when to sow certain seeds needs to be adjusted for my climate, the task itself is the same. It has all Monty’s tips and essential pieces of knowledge; and also shares his view that gardening is the secret to living well. is the story of a creative partnership that has weathered the greatest storm, and a testament to the healing powers of the soil. The young hedging plants were then planted in the lee of the fences and grew much faster as a result.
