    The diversity of Britain's gardens reflects the great variety of conditions in different areas, but sometimes the same questions get asked as Stefan Buczacki travels to six very different locations in this book. He offers answers to those specific questions, to help gardeners everywhere to make the most of their particular conditions. Each of the book's six chapters looks at different types of gardens: in mild areas, in acid soil, and close to the sea; in dry areas, and kitchen gardening; in uplands, in exposed areas, and alpine gardening; in urban areas and limited spaces; and gardens with trees and shrubs. Each chapter also features a portrait of a characteristic plant of the region and a description of a favourite local garden chosen by the author.
