You might be thinking that this review is a little strange. A youngster talking about gardening books - but, yes! It's true!
I really like the Expert Series by botanist, Dr D G Hessayon. He wrote lots of different books on gardening, from The House Plant Expert to The Vegetable Expert. All of his Expert Books are really detailed and full of great information! The various books describe gardening techniques, names of different plants (common names and botanical names) and give lots of detailed diagrams.
For example, I have The Garden Expert, which is the book which gives the more overall spectrum of gardening, instead of specific types of gardening. The book gives lots of great facts (like in 1973, a patio was present in 1 in 10 gardens - I bet you didn't know that!) It then goes on to describe the different types of soils (stony, peaty, chalky, sandy etc). Then there's a bit about weather and climate, then a bit on plants. It divides the plants into sections - climbers, shrubs, conifers, trees, roses, fruit, bulbs and rockery plants. Then there's information on planting methods(how to take cuttings, how to sow seeds etc) and a section on gardening tools. Then there's a troubleshooting section, a greenhouse section, a water gardening section and a garden design section. There's loads of detail.
A great book for all those gardener's out there whether just starting out, or professional gardeners!
