About the book

Synopsis

A Year in Christine's Garden is the utterly down-to-earth account of one woman's passion for plants. Recounting stories from her hectic life in horticulture, Christine Walkden's diary is a heartwarming account of octogenarian neighbours, living with a film crew and helping friends with their gardening needs.

Reflecting all the charm of her BBC2 television series, Christine's narrative paints a picture of the day-to-day beauty that surrounds her. She likes being outside, she likes walking her dog Tara, she likes watching the light change and she enjoys those little moments when everything seems right in the world.

With irrepressible enthusiasm, she interweaves tips and advice to prove that the best gardens are approachable and achievable. Forget fashion, forget trends - Christine's garden is about no-nonsense planting and growing what you enjoy.

As the year progresses, this warm, but frank diary brings to life all the moments of pride, excitement, relaxation and laugh-out-loud fun that make Christine's garden a haven of contentment.

About the Author

Christine has been a horticulturist since the age of 10 when she first obtained an allotment and started growing vegetables and flowers, which she sold to her school teachers and local residents. Today she is a freelance plantswoman, lecturing nationally and internationally, leading field trips throughout the world. Her first TV show, Christine's Garden, was shown on BBC2 in winter 2006 and found an enthusiasm for a gentler way of life. Since then she has become a columnist for Amateur Gardening and Garden News.
