Read from August 17 to September 12, 2011, read count: 1

I thought this book was excellent. It gives so much information in an easy to read format and I read it cover to cover like a novel! There are lots of full colour photos throughout.
Topics covered are soil, watering, weeds, plant health, gardening for wildlife, garden planning, herbaceous plants. growing vegetables, herbs, fruit and an A-Z of plant problems.
Great for beginner gardeners who don't want to use nasty chemicals in their gardens and look after the natural environment, and also for established gardeners who would like to change their ways.
I also like the way the book is printed using sustainable paper sources, uses vegetable inks and has no unnecessary dust jacket.
I got this book out of the library but it is going to go on my wishlist for my own copy.

Dan Sounds great! I love gardening books that you can actually read like a novel rather than an instruction manual. I saw this in WH Smith a few weeks back, I'll try and get it from the library (for next year!).
