In this collection of articles originally written for the Daily Telegraph he sets out to examine some of gardening?s most intriguing questions, and even manages to track down answers to a few of them. Why is that we seem to care more for common rather than rare animals? How can a gardener improve the flavour of their vegetables? And what do bees do that improves strawberries? From the difference between British and Spanish bluebells, why Matucana and High Scent sea peas are far superior to the Valerie Harrod variety, and the easy way to sex an earwig, Thompson provides an expert?s miscellany of gardening knowledge, aimed at making you not necessarily a better gardener - but quite probably a far more thoughtful one.
