The Gardener's Perpetual Almanack: A Book of Days

The Gardener's Perpetual Almanack: A Book of Days

by Martin Hoyles (Author)


Did you know that red herrings or garlic could rid your garden of moles, or that rosemary is supposed to make the heart merry and drive fantasies from the brain? Or when is the best time to start a beehive? Martin Hoyles, a lecturer and gardener of 20 years, draws on the wit and wisdom of over four centuries of almanacks, herbals and gardening books to provide this collection of advice and inspiration for all gardeners. There are quotations for every day of the year, from garden-lovers as diverse as John Donne and Derek Jarman, Thomas Jefferson and John Clare, Jane Austen and Vita Sackville-West.
