Thanks to everyone at Dorling Kindersley, including Clare Shedden and Helen Fewster, as well as Peter Anderson, Alison Donovan, Jo Doran, Peter Luff, Rachael Smith, and Louise Waller. Thanks also to Anna Kruger for asking me to write the book in the first place, but a very special thank you to my editor, Annelise Evans, for her enthusiasm, knowledge, and ability to know what I wanted to say even before I knew myself.
Richard Gianfrancesco at Gardening Which? and Paul Alexander, at the Royal Horticultural Society, were both willing to answer my daft questions.
Finally thanks to my wife, Pat, for her uncompromising refusal to accept my second-best efforts, and to Pat, Lewis, and Rowan for their willingness to tolerate the author at work.
Dorling Kindersley would like to thank Gerry and Sylvia Smith and Bill Watkin for generously allowing us to photograph their compost bins, and Sharon and Ivan Gould for letting us photograph in their home. Thanks also to Clare Sheddon and Peter Anderson for modelling, and to Sandy Lelliott for help with photoshoot preparation.
Dorling Kindersley would like to thank the following for their kind permission to reproduce their photographs: p.15: Louie Psihoyos/CORBIS; p.21, centre pp.32-33, and p.166: Steven Wooster; p.67: Lotti de la Bedoyere; p.137: Ken Thompson.
