Kindle monthly deals

It’s a new month and that brings new kindle deals. This month brings quite a few gardening books. While kindle isn’t an ideal format for gardening books where you often want the pictures many are cheap enough to be worth a try. Can always buy a hard copy if they prove good.

Organic Gardening: The Natural No-Dig Way

Charles Dowding’s books haven’t much of a reduction on them. I am still interested having seen him on Gardeners World a number of times. His gardening practises of avoiding digging to help soil health.

RHS Grow for Flavour: Tips & tricks to supercharge the flavour of homegrown harvests

James Wong discussing growing tips for edibles.

The Garden Awakening: Designs to nurture our land and ourselves

A gardening design book with a different focus. The focus being connecting with the garden and nature.

How to Grow: A guide for gardeners who can’t garden yet

A basic beginners guide.

How to Create a New Vegetable Garden: Producing a beautiful and fruitful garden from scratch

Another Charles Dowding book.

RHS Grow Your Own: Crops in Pots: with 30 step-by-step projects using vegetables, fruit and herbs (Royal Horticultural Society Grow Your Own)

These little RHS books don’t give massive detail. But they are usually quick interesting enough reads. I don’t have a dedicated veg plot, but I am growing a few things in pots. I may buy this one for some extra advice.

RHS Little Book of Small-Space Gardening: Easy-grow Ideas for Balconies, Window Boxes & Other Outdoor Areas (Rhs Little Books)

Continuing thus years trend for looking at small spaces.

Revive your Garden: How to bring your outdoor space back to life

This was only released by Nick Bailey a few months back. I was tempted at the time, as I like Nick’s contributions in magazines, and at 99p I’ll take a chance on kindle formatting.

RHS Little Book of Happy Houseplants (Rhs Little Books)

I’ve bought this one as well. I’ve been contemplating our house plants. Amy regularly buys herbs for the windowsill in the kitchen, then forgets she has them and they grow too big. Other than that she favours plastic looking plants I feel are hideous. I rather like cacti for their evolutionary adaptations, but not a great choice with a two year old in the house. However the benefit of having plants in the house for air quality and mental well being are well discussed. So I’d like to find something that meets my taste.

The Golden Age of the Garden: A Miscellany

A miscellany of garden writing.

A quick shout out for the glorious garden link party. The #mygloriousgardens brings together like minded gardeners to share their blogs. I was pleased to be selected for the featured blog for June. The list is here. Well worth a browse. To join in with July check it out here.

  1. When I first took on my allotment I got a tonne of garden books out from the library but soon realised I needed to spend less time reading and more time doing. 9 years later and I’d probably do well to read a little more again. I’ve given up on houseplants between nibbly cats and being distracted by kids so ‘Happy houseplants’ would definitely have to be on my list if I decide to try again!

  2. Looks like a great collection of garden books. I’m curious to read the Small Space Gardening book. I’m always looking for ways to best utilize the space on my balcony. Thank you for sharing with the #mygloriousgardens July link party and congrats on being selected as a feature!

    1. The RHS ones are usually pretty basic. I wouldn’t say they were worth buying full price, but as a quick cheap read they are fine. Just finished the house plant book. It was all information available online, but still a good enough introduction.

  3. The Gardening awakening one sounds just the kind of book I would like so I will definately take a look at that one. One of the children I teach in Learning support bought me a garden mindfulness book which I was so touched with that I had a sob! It was so me!
    Thanks for sharing this and for the shout out to the #MyGloriousGardens link party Joshua. Very kind of you. Have a great summer….nearly there!
