Dr Hessayon is best known for the fantastic “Expert” series of gardening books but here we are brought something slightly different and would be the perfect gift for any lover of gardening or gardens. There are lots of great chapters to dip in to with everything from the history for gardening through to what wild plant life is in your own back garden. A lovely and interesting book, perfect for a Christmas stocking.

Synopsis

The Bedside Book of the Garden by D G Hessayon

There are times when we simply wish to read about our hobby and not be badgered by advice. If you enjoy reading about plants whether or not you can grow them, or enjoy discovering gardens you may never visit and could never hope to match, or are keen to learn how people gardened in the past and what they have contributed to our gardens today, then this is the book for you. It includes sections on the great gardeners in history; extraordinary and surprising plants; remarkable gardens around the world; key gardening moments in history; the wildlife in our gardens; things for the plant lover to do indoors, and other 'this and that' trivia, statistics and fascinating things you never knew, all illustrated with charming line drawings.

The perfect gift and as the title says, the perfect bedside read for a nation of gardeners.
