I just read a great eBook on "Starting a New Garden" By Nick Brennanhttp://www.amazon.com/Starting-a-New-Garden-ebook/dp/B0086YJ3Y6/ref=sr_1_1_title_0_main?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1338336033&sr=1-1 lots of great Tips
Starting a brand new garden is fine, taking on a old one which bears no relation to what you might want is a whole other kettle of fish. Ah well better get back to the chopping, lugging and digging.
Yes, there are a lot of factors to bear in mind, when creating a new garden, or even moulding an existing one to your own tastes.I'm always interested in new books, so I thought I'd check this one out.All I could discover on Amazon UK was the price - £2. So don't expect the RHS Encyclopedia. I then tried to look elsewhere...I Googled and the first thing I saw was that Alys Fowler seems to be a fan of this book. Wow!Well, not exactly. But an exactly worded message "I just read a great eBook on Starting a New Garden By Nick Brennan - some great tips" has been posted on one her pages at the Guardian. It's on this page (9th comment):
Alys Fowler The GurdianAnd the same comment is also on a recent page in the gardening column at the Huffington Post:
Huffington Post Guarian ColumnAnd it's at EHow:
EHow Basic Gardening TechinquesThere is a review on Amazon US. Not surprisingly, the reviewer gives the book 5 stars, and gives us this very helpful taster:"The health benefits of creating a garden cannot be ignored either as you not only get your dose of vitamin D but also get some well needed exercise (especially those who are not that active anymore). Brennan also describes gardening as a way to relieve stress. All in all it is very concise and full of pertinent information. It is a must have guide if you want to start or revamp the garden. Book going for a great price as well!"And there are lots more posts on other pages. I was getting the picture at this point and gave up further research.But I'm all for enterprise, and innovation, and this does demonstate how easy it is for anyone to write a book, and get it published, and advertised, at virtually no cost.
