4 New Garden Books For My Local Library

fingal libraries card

I did ask fingal Libraries to keep me posted on new gardening books as and when they came in. In short, it’s a nice and easy way for this Dublin based gardener/ horticulturist to keep in touch with what’s coming on the market and also what might take my fancy.

The last post I published regarding new garden related books hitting the shelves of Fingal Libraries was August 9th. I was suffice to say, pretty impressed when an email came in again this month with the note of four new gardening publications attached.

The Self Sufficiency handbook by Alan & Gill Bridgewater

A practical guide to growing your own organic food, rearing chicken, goats and pigs, having an eco friendly home, this book is full of tips and advice with clear illustrations.

The Cook’s Garden – Australian Women’s Weekly

Information on when and where to plant, pest control and harvesting, tips on storing produce – bottling, freezing and drying, and lots of delicious recipes.

Gardening Landscape manual by Paul Wagland

[haynes] It describes the full range of popular landscaping techniques e.g. laying paving and building walls that even an amateur gardener could tackle with each project clearly explained and illustrated step by step.

The Veggie Gardener’s Answer Book by Barbara W. Ellis

A Questions & Answers format that covers a wide range of topics from dealing with pests and diseases, advice about soils and composting to the secrets of success with different vegetables.

Many thanks to Siobhan Walshe of Fingal Libraries PR Department for the above.
