Hot Brands Cool Places Verdict
This handy sized book is packed full with really helpful and sensible advice from one of our favourite gardeners. What we loved most is that it is like a conversation with Monty as he takes you through his thoughts on many aspects of gardening from the seasons, to different types of gardens, to practical tasks and so much more.
This is followed by a calendar of activities for each month of the year, plus throughout the book there are beautiful pictures of his own garden.
The title of the book is very apt as his advice really is down to earth, but what shines through is his love and passion for gardening and we are delighted that this beautifully written book is our Gardening Book of the Month! Highly Recommended!
