My gardening bookshelf
The books above are those I reach for most frequently when it comes to gardening:
Harvest by Meredith Kirton - This is a beautiful book. It has great pictures and is packed with information about almost anything you can think about in relation to the edible garden. This book not only informs, it inspires. If I need a bit of a push off the couch to get out into the garden, five minutes with this book and a cup of tea does the trick...
The Practical Australian Gardener by Peter Cundall - The main reason I like this book so much is that it is set out in months, with explanations of all the jobs you need to do in any given month. For me, it's a case of consulting this book to get an idea of what I should be getting on with at that time.
Complete Book of Fruit Growing in Australia by Louis Glowinski - There's no doubt about it, Louis has written a comprehensive book on all things fruit growing. At times a bit wordy, but certainly comprehensive.
Do you have any favourite gardening books?
