If you're the kind of person who subscribes to several gardening magazines, who relishes weekend weeding, or who feels it's cheating to not grow a vegetable from seed, this book is not for you. For the rest of us, The Deckchair Gardener
is the hilarious "improper gardening manual"
we've been waiting for! Humorously relating all kinds of honest and practical wisdom for skimping on difficult, time-consuming horticultural chores and cultivating a low-maintenance (yet still attractive and pleasant) outdoor space, author Anne Wareham encourages minimal garden work in favor of maximum garden enjoyment…how nice! (Note: Wareham is British, so some of her advice may not apply to all climates, but her biting English wit is well worth it!) (AG)
