Who is the best or most inspiring gardener in your life? Your mum, dad, grandfather, best-mate?

This journal takes the gardener in your life on a gardening stroll through their experiences. Carefully designed questions help to capture gardening advice, tips, secrets and dig up those great gardening stories.

Do you remember your mother explaining the best way to grow vegetables, or your father showing you how to plant seeds? Can you recall the gardening tips of your grandparents or that friend who grew those great flowers?

 Have you ever wondered how they learnt to garden or what their advice is to grow that special plant or vegetable that you love?

This is the gardening book that you give and then get it returned with an amazing collection of gardening stories and experiences that you will treasure and pass down the generations.

Perfect for any age, this is a great gift for that gardener’s birthday, allotment opening, Christmas or just because you care …

What a simple yet clever idea

My Dad used to spend hours on his allotment growing all sorts of fruit and vegetables and when I was old enough to start growing my own, he was always giving me top-tips and anecdotes to help. This journal now captures all his stories and tips in one book that I will keep forever. Has it helped my gardening - well I am not sure - but it has helped me understand so much more about my Dad!
