Leaf through inspiring books
Christine Walkden's No-Nonsense Container Gardening (Simon & Schuster, £20): She may now be a regular on The One Show and Radio 4's Question Time, but Christine Walkden is a gardener first and a presenter second. In her typical down-to-earth style, she shows you how to recycle tin cans, fruit crates and baskets and turn them into portable growing containers, grow your own lunch in a tub with dwarf varieties and cultivate abundant flowers for cutting and fragrance.
Royal Horticultural Society Grow Your Own Crops In Pots by Kay Maguire (Mitchell Beazley, £16.99): As growing your own fruit and veg continues to gain popularity, this book is one for people who perhaps do not have room for a vegetable plot or who simply want to have a go at growing produce in pots on the patio, close to the kitchen.
Wild Flowers by Carol Klein (BBC Books, £20): Master plantswoman and Gardeners' World presenter Carol Klein celebrates the most exquisite flora growing wild in our woodlands, hedge- rows, meadows and moors in this book and then returns to her own garden to see their cultivated cousins. This tie-in book sees Klein delving into the story of more than 30 of her favourite wild flowers, and sharing her practical expertise.
Gardening In Pyjamas: Horticult- ural Enlightenment For Obsessive Dawn Raiders by Helen Yemm (Simon & Schuster, £12.99): If you find yourself padding about your plot in your nightclothes without really knowing what to do, this book will provide you with all the essential facts to nurture your growing passion. Helen Yemm strikes a happy balance between giving you enough information to get you going but not so much that it scares you or puts you off entirely.
