I am not really a good flower gardener so my favourite book has to be Food From Your Garden from the Readers Digest. Everything you need to know about the veggies you are planning on growing is in one place, so no searching through the book season by season to look for what needs to be done through out the year.

Wish there was a flower book like this!

"A Month-by-Month Guide to Organic Gardening" by Lawrence D. Hills, published 1983.

Chock full of practical advice and good sense.

Best wishes
David

I like Joy Larkcoms "Vegetable Garden Displayed." a R.H.S. book now out of print. I believe her oriental veg book which is also excellent has been reprinted. The Hessayon veg and fruit books have clear instructions and illustrations,the best place for gardening books are car boots imho. I've built up a great "library" for peanuts. Last weekend I got an old book about planting an orchard and another about cider apples and making cider for 10p. each.

I picked up The Allotment Book by Andi Clevely second hand. It's a good basic manual.

I also picked up Caroline Foley's Allotment Source Book for under a fiver in the local garden centre. Another basic but interesting read.

The Revolutionary Way to Grow More In Less Space by Mel Bartholomew is my fav, espcially when you have a tiny garden :(
