That was until one day when I decided I'd just do one thing.
I'd grow fine English lawns.
Doing one thing is simple, but it's not easy.
Yearbook 2 concludes a journey, from doing everything to just doing one thing well, growing the finest English lawns around the UK.
No reprints. So if you want a copy, better reserve yourself one today.
What is the Yearbook all about?
The Yearbook captures a year lived by 5500 people around the world on the All Gardening Cafe group on Facebook.
It also highlights our day-to-day observations, looking at the world our way.
What you can do with a lawn and garden.
If you have time.
What grows within a lawn and garden?
When you don't have time
What happens when you make time?
Because that's all it takes is a bit of your time.
Some things take time, but without spending time nothing grows.
Your garden will wait.
Your garden will grow.
Your garden is for you, when you want it.
This Yearbook offers you a chance to think, dig deep, and think simply about the beautiful world around us.
The All Gardening YearBook concept originated from a short conversation had with his mother, Marie Argent the day she passed away.
Some of her final words were "I'm eternally hopeful Phil" on talking about his future and the future of the world. She also said he should "build something big and beautiful". To start he built a group on Facebook, The All Gardening Cafe, which then gathered 5500 members in 104 countries, and he did a podcast every day numbering over 228 last count.
Moments from the Facebook group and chats from the podcast became the foundation stones of the YearBook.
