Gardening Books

Quite simply, you can never have too many gardening books!

Our selection of books are suitable for novices and keen gardeners alike, and reflect our ethos that things should be done 'nature's way' and always with 'nature in mind'. More...

With gardening, techniques may change, and ideas may fall in and out of fashion, but the premise and theory - for the most part - remains the same! Yet for amateur and keen gardeners alike, there is an abundance of knowledge and gardening wisdom to be learned, so what better way to spend your non-gardening time than by reading about it?

The Shirley family are immensely proud of their private collection of books on gardening and horticultural practice, which date back hundreds of years. We have endeavoured to create a small but perfectly formed listing of books that we think will be of great use to gardeners of all abilities, but which also reflect our own ethos that things are in according to 'nature's way'.

Whilst we don't profess that any of the books in this listing are exclusive to Victoriana, we would say that they seem to be harder to find in the shops than they ought to be, given their merit!
