The essential book list….

In the last few weeks I’ve bought a lot of gardening books. I’ve already got a lot of gardening books. Just not the right ones.

But I have discovered the joys of buying second hand on Amazon. The only frustrating thing is that the delivery costs more than the books.

Here’s the list so far:

The Dry Garden by Beth Chatto

Perfect Plant Perfect Place by Roy Lancaster

Shrubs by Roger Phillips & Martyn Rix

Perennials Volume 1 Early Perennials by Roger Phillips and Martyn Rix

Perennials Volume 2 Late Perennials by Roger Phillips and Martyn Rix

Roses by Roger Phillips and Martyn Rix

Gardeners Essential Plant Guide by Brian Davies

Dictionary of Plant Names by Allen J Coombes

What Plant Where by Roy Lancaster

In the Roses book by Phillips and Rix I found a couple of rough sketches of planting plans… It’s nice to think I’m using books whose previous owners had them for the same reasons that I do. To make gardens.
