Summary, etc.:
This extensively revised new edition of his Complete Gardener, first published in 2003, brings you right up-to-date on how Monty gardens today - and his recommendations for you. The most comprehensive, practical, and highly illustrated book Monty has ever written, it covers what he believes are the most important aspects of gardening. Organic techniques have always been at the core of his practice, but this new edition picks up on another key principle: the need to provide habitats in your garden for local wildlife.

    At a large, but not unmanageable, site in the English countryside, Don reigns over a lush and diverse garden of his own creation. Undaunted by having to start from scratch, he planned, then planted, areas for fruits and vegetables, flowers and topiary, hedges and herbs and now shares his hard-won knowledge through detailed but highly conversant text and luscious and artistic photography by Ari Ashley. From planning to construction, planting to composting, Don covers virtually every aspect of garden design, installation, and management with a predilection toward environmentally friendly practices. Though his personal garden is located in England, the basic and comprehensive information he shares can be applied to nearly any garden anywhere. With an intimate style and infectious enthusiasm, Don encourages the home gardener to view his or her domain as an outlet for creativity and imagination. This elegantly designed and beautifully produced book is as practical as it is aesthetically pleasing--qualities not unlike Don's garden. ((Reviewed August 2003)) Copyright 2003 Booklist Reviews
