Every garden has its problems and here I help you solve thirteen of the most difficult garden situations. I analyse each problem, suggest how to alleviate the problem and then recommend plants to thrive in spite of the problem. You may think this is a timeworn topic but no other book deals so comprehensively with so many difficult situations.
