Are you planning to start or design your own garden and you’re not sure where to start?
Don’t worry I’ve got you covered with today’s book review.
I’ve always loved gardening ever since I can remember. I got exposed to agricultural stuff from primary school. When I was in high school I continued doing agriculture for one year but I had to stop because I wanted to do science related subjects. I’ve been meaning to start my small indoor-garden that I can manage as I’m still renting a flat. So today we are reviewing a lifestyle related book.
I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.

I’d like to say thank to Penguin Random House (South Africa) for sending me a copy.
This book is a useful guide for anyone who is planning to create a garden that will meet their needs and budget friendly. Garden Design and Planning shows you how to convert a bare patch or an existing layout into the garden of your dreams. The book is divided into 4 sections, namely; Getting Started, Construction Techniques, Garden Designs and Plants. These are detailed perfectly with the help of illustrations.
I really loved this book and I’d really recommend it, if you’ve recently moved to your new house and you are planning to start a design for your garden. Thus I gave it:
A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.
— Liberty Hyde Bailey
Those ere my thoughts, I hope you enjoyed.
