Format: Paperback
This is my second review for Amazon, and I am pleased to say that it is a very useful, well-written book, exactly as it says on the cover: a practical Introduction to Gardening. Like all Dorling Kindersley books, it is easy to read, well-designed and well-produced (even for a paperback); I can not understand why there is no preview on the website.

The easiest way to summarise the book is to list the Table of Contents:

1. The Garden You Want
2. The Garden You've Got
3. Flowerbeds & Borders
4. Perennials, Annuals & Biennials
5. Bulbs
6. Shrubs
7. Climbers
8. Roses
9. Grasses, Bamboos & Ferns
10. Lawns, Meadows & Gravel Gardens
11. Trees
12. Hedges
13. Containers
14. Tools & Techniques
15. Garden Doctor
16. Garden Year Planner

The book includes plant selections in each category, but there is nothing about growing fruit and vegetables (it suits me). However, I would like a chapter on garden planning (not design) and I think the last chapter should be more comprehensive. Despite the title, this is not a "Mickey Mouse" book, and is a useful reference for all gardeners.

Just the job as a gift to a beginner. It is an introduction, just as it says on the cover, and anyone with experience would know most of it. But it will give a sound grounding in "good practice", and allow practice to make perfect.

I've been looking for a good "how to" book for ages and hadn't seen what I liked the look of until I saw this book. It's simply written and has good illustrative pictures. Easy to follow instructions, which gives one the confidence to jump in and try it.
