I love Helen Yemm's "Gardening in your Nightie" and the follow on ones. She's very hands on but funny with it.
Also have just acquired 1001 Garden Boosters (Readers Digest) and their Seasonal Guides (Early Spring, Spring, Summer, etc) quite useful.
Have actually just nipped downstairs to look at my bookshelves, got 3 just on gardening and have over flowed onto the carpet! Charity shops are a brilliant source of gardening books as you can pick them up at reasonable prices, read them and recycle the ones you don't want.
