We do our best to ready the garden for winter by the end of November, protecting tender plants and clearing the decks and then hunker down in December and January before work begins again in earnest in February and the gardening year swings around again. Monty Don's articles are so well founded, his enthusiasm is contagious and his advice is invaluable. The planting is modern and based upon a matrix of the soft grass stipa tenuissima with the tulip acuminata, with its long ottoman-like petals in spring and tulbaghia and verbena bonariensis flowering in summer. I read many of Monty’s books already and therefore decided to savour this particular one as it’s so beautifully divided into 12 chapters that correspond to the 12 months of a gardening year.

The nation's favourite gardener' - Guardian 'There was nothing here that could possibly be described as a garden. Here Monty invites us into the garden at Longmeadow, to show us how he created this beautiful garden, and how we can do the same in our own. 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 Jewel garden really hits its stride in August and September despite the shortening days because the nights are warm and dahlias, bananas, zinnias, tithonia, sunflowers, helianthus, nicotiana and cosmos are flowering exuberantly.

Planting both acknowledges the koranic dictates of fruit with pomegranate, olive and citrus trees but also very British crab apples. 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. By the way, I have a book review meme on the 20th of every month, and I invite you to add this, if you would like. But the lemon light of September is both radiant and wistful, touched simultaneously with glory and regret.

He has written a weekly gardening column for the Daily Mail since 2004, and published over 20 books, including the bestsellers Down to Earth, Nigel: My Family and Other Dogs, and My Garden World.

Each month focuses on plants that are at their height that month whether they are ornamental or edible, tasks to do and what that month means to Monty and Longmeadow. History When we bought this house in October 1991, the garden consisted of a 2 acre abandoned field out the back and a much smaller area in the front covered in builder’s rubble. Following the cycle of the seasons, this book introduces readers to the garden from the earliest snowdrops of January through the first splashes of colour in the spring, 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. Yet from early January the signs are there with snowdrops and aconites appearing and the catkins on the hazels yellow with pollen. A firm favourite with viewers, Monty’s infectious enthusiasm for plants, attention to the finer details of gardening technique and easy charm have seen the ratings soar.
