First published in 1952 and reprinted in numerous subsequent editions, The Small Garden has been the gardening bible for an entire generation. Not only does it cover every conceivable topic, but it is written in a remarkably straightforward way. No other gardening book is so admirably geared towards the ordinary gardener: the enthusiastic amateur with an average-sized garden.

The Small Garden contains everything the amateur gardener needs to know on subjects as diverse as propagation techniques and rock garden design, greenhouse management and hedge planting, fruit varieties and pruning roses. There is also general information on plant cultivation, a month-by-month breakdown of garden tasks and a jargon-busting glossary of gardening terms.
C.E. Lucas Phillips was the author of The Cockleshell Heroes which remains his most popular and most renowned work, as well as a string of gardening titles.
