Invites us into the garden at Longmeadow to introduce us to the garden from the earliest snowdrops of January through the first splashes of colour in the Spring Garden, the electric summer displays of the Jewel Garden, the autumn harvest in the orchard, and on to a Christmas feast sourced from the vegetable gardens. 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.

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. With beautiful photography throughout, Gardening at Longmeadow is an essential book for gardening enthusiasts of all skill levels. Alongside his rich, personal experiences at Longmeadow, Monty describes the individual plants coming into their own in the floral and vegetable gardens and talks you through key tasks, from composting and lawn maintenance to topiary clipping and fruit pruning.

But beneath years of neglect was a blank canvas that I could fill with the garden of my dreams…’Monty Don invites you into Longmeadow, a place that has become synonymous with Gardener’s World, to show how he creates and tends his own garden, and how you can bring some of that same magic to our own. 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.The book starts with an introduction to Longmeadow, with Monty describing how it was a complete blank canvas of farmyard and fields when they first moved there and how he has tried to create a garden that works with nature and sits happily in the landscape. Following the cycle of the seasons, Gardening at Longmeadow will introduce readers to the garden from the earliest snowdrops of January through the first splashes of colour in the Spring Garden, the electric summer displays of the Jewel Garden, the autumn harvest in the orchard, and on to a Christmas feast sourced from the vegetable gardens. Here Monty invites us into the garden at Longmeadow, to show us how he created this beautiful garden, and how we can do the same in our own. But the lemon light of September is both radiant and wistful, touched simultaneously with glory and regret.

But in my mind that early field with its pattern of woven fences protecting the little plants, so small yet filled with dreams, still remains beneath the skin, is still there beneath all the years. At one end of the garden, a path curves round to the writing hut where the author can work on his books. The book is also an easy read and if you watch Gardeners world it is easy to hear Monty’s voice in your head as you move through the pages. A greenhouse had fallen down after 20 odd years in one part of the garden so when we cleared it away and found we had a new and empty part of the garden I decided to make my own Paradise Garden based upon the influences I had seen across the Islamic world.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. Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. Across two sites separated by a hedged path we have a mixture of raised beds, larger beds and some surrounded by low woven fences that are halfway between the two.

At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills.

Although viewers of Gardeners’ World see parts of the garden every week, it still felt that the book was giving me an insight into a private space. Monty Don invites you into Longmeadow, a place that has become synonymous with Gardener's World , to show how he creates and tends his own garden, and how you can bring some of that same magic to our own. Following the cycle of the seasons, this book introduces readers to the garden from the earliest snowdrops of January through the first splashes of colour in the spring, the electric summer displays of the jewel garden, the autumn harvest in the orchard, and on to a Christmas feast sourced from the vegetable gardens.
