The Sceptical Gardener: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Good Gardening
picture
Features:-
Ken Thompson is a biologist but has been writing about gardening for over fifteen years, and has been a gardener for longer than he would care to remember. In this collection of articles originally written for the Daily Telegraph he sets out to examine some of gardening's most intriguing questions, and even manages to track down answers to a few of them. Why is that we seem to care more for common rather than rare animals? How can a gardener improve the flavour of their vegetables? And what do bees do that improves strawberries? From the difference between British and Spanish bluebells, why Matucana and High Scent sea peas are far superior to the Valerie Harrod variety, and the easy way to sex an earwig, Thompson provides an expert's miscellany of gardening knowledge, aimed at making you not necessarily a better gardener - but quite probably a far more thoughtful one.

The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2018
picture
Features:-
Have you ever wondered why the moon is sometimes blue?


The New Almanac revives the tradition of the rural almanac for those who want to connect with the seasons through gardening, eating seasonally, moon-gazing, foraging, celebrating feast days and picking seasonal flowers. It brings you the tools and inspiration you need to celebrate, mark and appreciate each month of the year.

For each of the 12 months, award-winning gardener and food writer Lia Leendertz shares her practical guidance for expeditions, meteor-spotting nights and beach holidays, as well as stories about each month’s unique nature and folklore, and charts relevant to each month.

Keep track of the phenomena of the universe with tables familiar to almanacs of the past: significant dates; phases of the moon; sunrise and sunset times; king tides; equinoxes, solstices and cross-quarter days; food in season; a forager’s guide; meteor showers, visible planets and lunar eclipses; festivities (Samhain, Wassailing, Divali, Midsummer) and more.

Lia also shares her favourite recipes using seasonal ingredients and relating to each month’s festivity: cider cake for wassailing in January; blood orange tart in February; potato kugel gratin for Passover in April; Beltane wine for May Day; sticky cinnamon figs in September; and soul cakes at Hallowe’en.

Filled with wonder, The New Almanac is a highly practical, historical and contemplative book to be enjoyed all year long, and it will have you looking forward to the next edition as the year draws to a close.
