A Year at Glebe Cottage with Carol Klein takes us on a procession through time, from the hidden secrets of winter, the first shoots of spring and the fecundity of summer right through to the slow retreat of autumn and the preparation for rebirth.

With Jonathan Buckley's stunning photographs throughout, we travel with Carol on a journey through the year to reveal the wonder of the garden in every season, how it all works: preparing soil, planting out, planning, putting plants together, propagating growth, development, succession, as shoot becomes bud, opens to flower then to seedhead. Seed is collected, stored; crops are harvested; plants dug up to divide and replant, and swapped with other gardeners.

One of the country's leading plantswoman and an inspirational broadcaster and writer, Carol shows how enjoyable and accessible gardening is and demonstrates that everyone can do it, that it’s free and, above all, that it’s so thrilling. In her own unique style, she takes takes the mystery out of the mystique, but always leaves the magic.
