The Thrifty Gardener Alys Fowler, 23 Jun 2010
For anybody that enjoyed watching Alys Fowlers recent tv show on BBC2 this book is a must. Im new to gardening and she portrays a love of the garden like no other. The book is full of useful tips from soil analysis to where plants like to grow. The vegetable section is just enough information to get you curious enough to start and give it a go. Anyone who is thrifty by nature will love the tips on collecting seeds and the whole ethos of reusing skip finds and other cast offs in the garden. Im not saying you wont need more indepth technical books to help your understanding, but this is a lovely starter book to get your interest and hopefully a love of gardening. A true gem of a book. I love it.
