Gardening Book

http://www.amazon.co.uk/RHS-Gardening-Through-The-Year/dp/1405347392/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397514651&sr=8-1&keywords=rhs+gardening+books

I was just wondering if anyone has any experience/knowledge of this book?  I have found out quite a few things in the RHS website so thought an RHS book might be a good idea.

I don't want anything complicated, just nice and simple with step by step info and as this one is month specific thought it looked quite good image

  • Like Mike, I have quite a collection of gardening books. I don't know this specific one but if you want a good book to cover the basics - I would recommend Alan Titchmarsh's 'How to be a Gardener.'

    i often pick up books in charity shops , if i only learn 1 thing from each book i consider it money well spent

  • It's my belief that you can't really learn gardening from books.....there is no substitute for experience and there is an enormous amount of that on this forum, available just for the asking.

    I've been asked several times (including this forum) to consider writing a book about growing sweet peas, but the idea doesn't appeal.

    Here is what I'm going to do.......I'm going to make my own book image

    I'm going to go through all my followed threads, as these are the ones I have started / commented on and must be useful, cut and paste the relevant quotes/info (removing any names etc so there is no reference to anyone). Then print up the pages and put in my own notebook......bingo, my own custom made book with only info I need in image
