Product Code: BOOK-SENIORS

This ground-breaking book shows how easy it is for seniors to carry on gardening, into and way beyond retirement. It looks at different kinds of homes and the gardens they provide, assessing the location, local climate and soil type and evaluating problems such as arthritis and loss of balance. The book also outlines the importance of taking care of your body, summarising the safety issues, what to wear, warm-up exercises and equipment to make the garden easy to access for unsteady feet or wheelchairs. Included is a directory that profiles the many planting choices available, each with a difficulty rating and a hardiness category. Gardening for Seniors is packed with projects, garden plans and step-by-step sequences. It will appeal to active gardeners in their early retirement through to those with more limited abilities, showing how, by adapting garden activities and the tools employed, the joy of gardening will remain undiminished.
