"The Broons" were launched in 1936 in The Sunday Post in Scotland, and are still going strong. They are undoubtedly Scotland's First Family - The Nation's Favorites - with a readership covering all generations.
Maw Broon's Cookbook, Maw Broon's But an' Ben Cookbook and The Broons' Burns Night have become household favorites.
There is no higher authority on key aspects of gardening and house plants than the old hands in The Broons family, and with The Broons' Book O' Gairdenin' Wisdoms they present a unique view on town & country gardening.
There's the back green at Glebe Street, and the window boxes - hanging baskets and plants in the stair - Granpaw's garden at his ain hoose, and of course Granpaw's allotment is the source of many a fine organic vegetable that finds it way on to the Broons' table. And don't forget the But an' Ben's garden - the source of so many ingredients for the recipes in Maw Broon's But an' Ben Cookbook.
This book is the Broons' collected gairdenin' wisdoms - tools, planting, composting, digging, nurturing, harvesting; there's even a blueprint for Paw's bench. And of course the Bairn has her own wee patch too! These are family gardening tips - something for everyone both young and old, whether you have a garden, only a few pots, or just a wee grow-bag. The Broons strip itself is still hugely popular, with The Sunday Post having a circulation of over 1,000,000 copies every week, and within the pages there are some examples of the strip from years gone by that will make you smile, as The Broons get stuck in to a spot of gairdenin'.
