De­sign your Gar­den Tool­kit by Michelle Ger­vais (£19.95, Storey Pub­lish­ing)

THOSE OF US old enough to re­mem­ber play­ing with Fuzzy Felt will doubt­less en­joy ‘play­ing’ with this new gar­den de­sign book by Michelle Ger­vais. The 80-page guide book is full of sen­si­ble de­sign ad­vice and pro­files of pop­u­lar plants to use in the gar­den. Those same cul­ti­vars are also sup­plied as 150 reusable il­lus­trated stick­ers with a glossy back­ing card show­ing an empty gar­den scene. The idea is, you can peel off these life­like il­lus­tra­tions and stick them onto the back­drop card, to cre­ate your own dream bor­der. You can mix shrubs and grasses and peren­ni­als to your heart’s con­tent, lay­er­ing and re­ar­rang­ing them at whim. Bril­liant idea and enor­mous fun. ✿✿✿✿✿
