` THE magazine Good Housekeeping has produced four new gardening books in an ‘Easy to Grow’ series.
With an easy to follow layout and useful photographs to support the well written text, these books could help any first time gardeners to get growing.
The four books are Easy to Grow Herbs (ISBN 978-1-84340-540-5), Easy to Grow Vegetables (ISBN 978-1-84340-538-2), Easy to Grow Pots and Containers (ISBN 978-1-84340-541-2) and Easy to Grow Flowers (ISBN 978-1-84340-539-9). Each book is priced at £5.99 and published by Collin and Brown.
