Surprising several rate Bob Flowerdew. He has never really done it for me.
Soilman has got there first. Since the sad demise of my Dad, Dr Hessayon has proved a most reliable resource. No other authority required!
When I used to have my 2x2 m2 garden in a big city in Holland my biggest inspiration was You Grow Girl who had just written her first book about container/small garden and balcony gardening. Now living in the Belgian Ardennes with 2000 m2 I have to say it is Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall. I have been in awe of him since the start of River Cottage and every time I need a reminder of why we are taking on this project I watch a few episodes and I breath easier and feel more at ease. He is like a zen master for me!
