Description

Exploding myths and offering research-backed advice, this book provides a shortcut to decades of gardening experience by explaining the science behind how a garden grows.

Why does my cherry tree blossom but never fruit? What's the most effective slug deterrent? Could I breed my own unique variety of flower? The world of gardening can be a mystifying place, with so many instructions to follow and often little explanation as to why.

From hands-on advice to an exploration of the mental health benefits of gardening, and the positive impact gardening can have during a climate crisis, The Science of Gardening debunks myths, and reveals the latest science only taught at horticultural college.

As a passionate newcomer to gardening, daunted by the mountain of often conflicting advice in gardening manuals, Dr Stu has set about testing the scientific basis of conventional wisdom so you too can garden like a pro.
