Carol Klein 'definitive book' set for publication in September

TV gardener Carol Klein's Making a Garden is published by Octopus in September 2015.

Klein said: "This is a book I have been longing to do. I hope it expresses what I feel about gardening and what for me is the foundation on which it is based.

"Nature is the best of teachers and if we observe how she operates and base our own efforts on what we can learn from her, we stand a good chance of creating beautiful gardens."

In the book Klein explains how to get the most from a garden by taking inspiration from what works in the wild – be it in a meadow, woodland, hedgerow, wetland, seaside or exposed setting.

She encourages gardeners to identify the conditions in their outdoor space – for example, the shady corner of an urban garden mimics the conditions of woodland or a windswept roof terrace will replicate an exposed hillside – and to pick the plants that flourish in these conditions.
