Book Description

6 Oct 2008 Pocket Bibles
Do you know every gardening technique and rule of thumb off pat? Or do you occasionally straighten up from your digging to try and remember exactly what you’re meant to be doing? How deep should you plant these bulbs? Was it now you were supposed to prune this rose, or in February? Can you compost this weed? Is it OK to plant out these seedlings now? It’s such a pain having to go indoors, kick off your boots, shed your outdoor clothes and start looking up the answer to your question in some great gardening tome. And that’s where The Gardener’s Pocket Bible comes in. Now, you can stay in the garden and look up all those essential facts and figures in an instant. At your fingertips you’ll have all the answers to your on-the-spot questions such as: Which plants do you need to protect from frost? When should you cut the hedge? What plants need staking, and when? How can you get rid of greenfly without using pesticides? This indispensible little guide will tell you what you need to know, when you need to know it – and will save you thumbing through gardening encyclopedias when what you actually want to do is get on with the gardening.

This beautiful hardback edition has both dust-cover and gold embossing on the spine making it the perfect gift. Every Pocket Bible is lovingly crafted to give you a unique mix of useful references, handy tips and fascinating trivia that will enlighten and entertain you at every page. There is a Pocket Bible for everyone...

Other titles in the series: The Outdoor Pocket Bible, The Camping Pocket Bible, The London Pocket Bible, The Camping Pocket Bible and The Railway Pocket Bible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every gardener needs one! 18 July 2008
Format:Paperback
It's concise, clear and highly readable. Such a relief not to get bogged down in excess detail. As a horticultural student, this book enables me to forget a lot of irrelevant information and remind myself of the basics.

5.0 out of 5 stars SIMPLY FANTASTIC 22 Nov 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I’ve got every gardening book under the sun and I didn't think there would be a new slant on gardening that anyone cold think up - and now they have done. I’m impressed. This is an incredibly handy little book and one I shall have in my gardening jacket pocket always. I like the information, the layout, the ease with witch I can find stuff. And it is such an obvious idea that I wonder no one had thought of it before - all the tips and tricks you need while you are actually out in the garden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended book 22 Mar 2010
Format:Hardcover
Does exactly what it says it will do. Most gardening `rules of thumb` in a handy pocket sized book. I found it so useful that I intend to buy another copy ofThe Gardener's Pocket Bible: Every Gardening Rule of Thumb at Your Fingertips (Pocket Bibles) so I can keep one at the allotment and one at home. Useful stuff that can be found on the internet but i dont have the internet on the allotment - yet. Cant recommend this book highly enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'll buy the book instead as the content looked very good.
Found problems with the Kindle edition although the book would probably be perfectly satisfactory. It's a type of reference book as most gardening books are, which I would leave... Read more
