3 Gardening Books for Christmas [REVIEWED]

Are you are looking for the garden related book for Christmas for yourself or someone else? I realized that I have reviewed 3 great gardening books here at Ewa in the Garden, so maybe this could be the moment to start to build up a list of books which could be a great gift idea.

I linked each book to the full review page and also to the Amazon page.


1. Sissinghurst: Vita Sackville-West and the Creation of a Garden / Full Review - Sissinghurst is the garden that inspires many gardeners and garden designers. The book is packed with lots of information about how Sissinghurst was created, what challenges were faced and how they managed to turn weaknesses into strengths. You will find the detailed  descriptions how in the design they successfully camouflaged the exccentricities of the land, that today you can’t spot it.

2. Rodale's Ultimate Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening: The Indispensable Green Resource for Every Gardener / Full Review - What’s best about this book? Information is not scattered all around in short entries, which makes using it more difficult if you need to dig the subject. What you will really like, all knowledge is practically organized into complete entries that provide information in a style ‘all you need to know about…’.

3. Organic Gardening / Full Review - After reading this book and – which is far more important - using it in the garden for at least one season, you will love to spread the news among your friends. It is full of easy to use  information that will keep your garden healthy and beautiful. I am sure it will answer all of your questions and doubts you may have.

Attention! If you know a fabulous gardening book that you would like to other to read as well, share it with us in comment section. If you would like to write a review for our readers let me know in an email (look for it contact section).

Hi Ewa,
Thanks for sharing the books you reviewed.
As co-author with Karen Chapman, we were thrilled to have won both a Silver and Gold Medal this year from the Garden Writers Association for our book Fine Foliage.
We would love it if you wrote a review on our book too! We are happy to supply you with a copy.

I received a book already for Christmas from my family. Fran Sorin is the author, Digging Deep is the book. Motivational on all fronts, garden and life. It's been so good to snuggle up and read in this cold weather as I can't be out in the garden!
