Why are rabbits so determined to head for your most expensive plants? What do you wear when you garden? Does pruning a rose really have to be as complicated as we think? Why doesn't spring go on longer? When is the best time to plant vegetables? In The Curious Gardener, you'll find helpful guidance on growing everything from potatoes, basil, lemon grass and salad leaves to clematis and magnolias. But you'll also go travelling: to a flower shop in New York, to the mountains of Corsica where wild hellebores grow under the chestnut trees, and to some astonishing gardens in Britain, California and Italy.
