You cannot rely on one book having all the knowledge you need to make you a good gardener.    But, if you want a cheap source of books, try the charity shops.   They always have plenty of gardening books whenever I look.

Adam Pasco

A 'bookazine' is a high quality magazine available at newsagents with the production values of a book, with thicker cover and high quality paper and print.

The bookazine costs £4.99, and an iPad App version is also available for £3.99. Check out details here:

You can also find our Gardeners' World 'Grow Your Own' bookazine in WH Smiths and other major newsagents. 

Though I say it myself, it really is a fabulous guide to growing your own.

I will be investing in the bookazine over the weekend Thank you
