Tom's Topical Tips
I am not a great fan of gardening books in general, Hessayon being a brilliant
exception, very simple to follow and not full of unnecessary information.
However, one book I do have, and which I think most people would love, is "The complete old wives' lore for gardeners" (isbn 0-370-31379-8) by Bridget and Maureen Boland. Sadly I suspect it is out of print, but somewhere second hand copies must be available. It is amusing and a good read even if you are not a gardener. Do try and find a copy, I promise you will not regret it. Tom
