Keeping on top of the best time to sow seeds, plant bulbs or get your pruning sheers out can be tricky for new and experienced gardeners with busy lives. What to Sow, Grow and Do offers a season-by-season guide to the garden, with projects, advice and ideas to help you plan your time and inspire your planting.

Tracking a year in the garden, it shows you what to do when in a series of straightforward how-tos and handy checklists. It also celebrates each season of the year, highlighting the plants in season, the wildlife to spot and the changes you can notice in the garden and beyond.

Seasonal tasks cover everything from sowing salad leaves to pruning roses, together with ideas on encouraging birds to nest, hedgehogs to hibernate and supporting a garden that's full of life. Armed with this book, you can create a thriving, flourishing garden that’s a joy to be in.

Each half season, the book will cover:
• Plants in seasons – what’s coming into flower and in full bloom, to help you plan your gardening year
• Monthly tasks – a guide that includes what to sow, grow and do, plus a task list of jobs around the garden
• The season's highlights – what to harvest, forage and look out for in the garden and beyond

Whether you are a seasoned horticulturalist or are just starting on your gardening adventure, this guide is an indispensible companion to your year in the garden.
