Winter Reading for Gardeners

Winter winds, freezing nights and days, rain or snow – and the garden sleeps.winter garden

Is there any better time to catch up on your reading – about gardening, of course – than during the winter.

Imagine sitting cosily in front of the fireplace, tucked under a warm blanket in your most comfortable chair, and dreaming of spring. Great gardening books abound, and every gardener needs their own private library to study, plan and dream with.

Have any committed gardeners on your Christmas list? One of my favorite presents, both to give and receive, is a good book.

Here are some great gardening books on a variety of topics just to get you started:

Trowel and Error: Over 700 Tips, Remedies and Shortcuts for the Gardener

Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre

The Winter Harvest Handbook: Year Round Vegetable Production Using Deep Organic Techniques and Unheated Greenhouses

Saving Seeds: The Gardener’s Guide to Growing and Storing Vegetable and Flower Seeds (A Down-to-Earth Gardening Book)
