Winter Reading

Hi All

Nights drawing in, now is the time for me to catch up on my gardening reading.

    Mark, I like  The Idiot Gardener's Handbook by Daphhne Ledward, had it years but still refer to it.

    Also love the pictures in   The Sensuous Garden by Monty Don.

    For a smile / laugh it's   A Little Light Weeding by Richard Briers.

    Might try the Richard Briers book Kef, sounds good. Its not reading I know, but I just bought the Victorian Kitchen Garden series (BBC) for my long winter night gardening fest!

  • Thanks KEF and ginagibbs, I'll check them out. I'm reading at the moment;

    Minding My Peas and Cucumbers: Quirky Tales of Allotment Life by Kay Sexton and just finished The Allotment Diaries: A Year of Potting, Plotting and Feasting by Kay Sexton.

    I dont have an allotment and I have enjoyed and enjoying reading them

    One of my customers gave me huge pile of old gardening mags yesterday - some dating back to 2006, it's going to take me all winter to plough through them image

  • Gardening Maps!? never heard of them. Sounds intresting

    I'll be catching up on all the G'sWorld mags - (that's mags mark! image) that I've not had time to read properly over the summer. Like to dip in and out of Christopher Lloyd's book 'Colour for Adventurous Gardeners'.

    And somewhere on the hill
    Inside the past we hear the bells
    Catching only parts of thoughts
    And fragments of ourselves
    Till we begin
