I have just treated myself to a couple of new gardening books to compensate for the terrible weather ( well that's my excuse) and wondered if anyone else has come across Alys Fowlers book "The Edible Garden" It is just the most delicious book I have read in ages. I have got lots of great ideas from it and she is wonderfully practical and down to earth which makes you feel you too could achieve the wonderful mix of ornamental and edible display she has achieved in her small garden. the quality of the book and print, layout and photography is a delight and I shall be referring to it for years to come. It is the sort of book you can curl up with in front of the fire and dream with. The other book I got is The Ivington Diaries by Monty don; another treat to look forward to but my husband has snaffled that for the moment.
