I bought a hundred 6ft chestnut stakes and quartered them (chestnut cleaves beautifully down the grain) to make 400. It will inspire you to achieve a balanced, healthy garden of your own, one that’s spilling with produce and full colour all year round. Monty’s approach is very refreshing and it’s heartening to know that he has created such a successful garden with this attitude. 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. The sumptuous photographs in the book of kitchen garden abundance and stunningly beautiful flowers could not be better adverts for both policies.

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. The book is then divided into months but it isn’t a book with your typical monthly listings of things to do. No missing or damaged pages, no tears, possible very minimal creasing, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. I’ve not so far had the opportunity to go through the book, but from the quick look through it, I’m sure I’m going to enjoy it and learn lots.

The Mound has become a peaceful place to sit, which Monty has planted with a calming lemon and cornflower blue colour scheme. 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. But if you want to know how to have salad leaves for your plate 365 days per year like Monty, then this is definitely for you. But when it is wet for weeks and we do not see the sun at all for days on end then it is miserable and gardening dribbles to a soggy halt.

His previous books include The Complete Gardener, the Sunday Times bestsellers Nigel and My Garden World, The Jewel Garden with Sarah Don, and Japanese Gardens with Derry Moore, which was shortlisted for the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards. The two-acre space is divided into several different areas, including the Cottage Garden, the riot of colour that is the Jewel Garden, the Islamic-inspired Paradise Garden, and the Vegetable Garden.The first starts at the end of May and continues to mid July and then there is a noticeable shift as the light changes slightly and the whole garden heats up until September. Our fundamental horticultural belief is that you should never force or cajole a plant of any kind, edible or decorative, if it doesn’t want to be there. This means that it is rich and intense and that is intensified by the extraordinary vigorous growth of plants in our wonderful Herefordshire loam.

Details of Monty’s promotional appearances (including book signings) can be found on the Events page.

A year ago his garden, Longmeadow, became the location for the filming of Gardeners’ World and this book takes the reader through a typical gardening year there.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.

Here Monty invites you into the garden at Longmeadow, to show you how you can do the same in your own. I found to be the more engaging by reading it as such, month to month through my own gardening year, and I found it to be a joy.Join our community to get personalised book suggestions, extracts straight to your inbox, 10% off RRPs, and to change children’s lives. But it’s been the private garden – and passion – of Monty and his wife Sarah for 30 years, created from a bare field of rough grass with a lot of energy and imagination. The young hedging plants were then planted in the lee of the fences and grew much faster as a result. He’ll talk through the essential techniques and more complex processes, accompanied by easy-to-follow, step-by-step photography. All of our books are 100% brand new, unread and purchased directly from the publishers in bulk allowing us to pass the huge savings on to you!
