Fill your garden with flowers all-year round with inspiration, planting ideas and expert advice from Sarah Raven. Colour and scent are the hallmarks of Sarah Raven’s style – and they are simple luxuries that everyone can bring into their garden. A Year Full of Flowers reveals the hundreds of hardworking varieties that make the garden sing each month, together with the practical tasks that ensure everything is planted, staked and pruned at just the right time.
Tracing the year from January to December at her home, Perch Hill, Sarah offers a complete and transporting account of a garden crafted over decades. Sharing the lessons learned from years of plant trials, she explains the methods that have worked for her, and shows you how to achieve a space that’s full of life and colour. Discover long-lasting, divinely scented tulips, roses that keep flowering through winter, the most magnificent dahlias and show-stopping alliums, as well as how to grow sweet peas up a teepee, take cuttings from chrysanthemums and stop mildew in its tracks.
This is passionate, life-enriching gardening; it’s also simple, adaptable and can work for you. Sarah has made the garden central to her life – this book shows you how you can too.
