Did you know that Amazon regularly offers some Kindle eBooks for free? Kindle Unlimited (paid service) members get a wider range, than non-members, but they normally have a lot of titles available for free. It changes regularly, so links below will not last for long as free purchases, but I thought I'd share with you a few of the currently available titles relating to Gardens, Plants, Landscape, etc that I thought were worth reading.

To be clear, I am not saying that these are the best books out there on these subjects, but I am recommending that they are worth getting for free for sure. See below, in no particular order.

A to Z Gardening for Beginners by Lisa Bond. Quick Read, solid advice, lacks pictures to illustrate points.

Garden Design and Landscaping - The Beginner's Guide to the Processes Involved with Successfully Landscaping a Garden (an overview) ('How to Plan a Garden' Series Book 7) by Rachel Mathews. Part of a much larger series of How to Guides. Lots of text with valuable comments. Needs more images to illustrate points. Content decent here. A good beginner's guide.

Little Farm in the Garden: A Practical Mini-Guide to Raising Selected Fruits and Vegetables Homestead-Style (Little Farm in the Foothills Book 3) by Susan Colleen Browne. Lacks images and written from an American perspective, so not everything translates to UK gardening, but interesting content.

A Beginner’s Guide to Cacti - How to Make a Cactus Garden (The Gardening Series Book 2) by John Davidson and Dueep J. Singh. Short, straightforward guide with some images. Basic, but a good start.

The plant-lore and garden-craft of Shakespeare by Henry Nicholson Ellacombe. Really interesting identification of plants and gardens mentioned in Shakespeare's texts. Loved this. My favourite in this offering by some distance.

Container Gardening Month by Month: A Monthly Listing of Tips and Ideas for Creating a Professional Container Garden (The Weekend Gardener Book 1) by Gloria Daniels. Written from an American perspective, but fine for the Temperate Gardens of the UK. Useful beginner's guide with some images.

There are LOTS more to read and many are decent texts. Most lack images, or at least enough images to support the text. A number of them are serialised and you only get one part of the series for free encouraging purchases if you crave more. That's commerce I suppose.


Please note, the links to Amazon are affiliate links. If you purchase a paid for ebook/kindle book from Amazon, using this link I will receive a small payment from them. It doesn't cost you anything and the book is priced as per the Amazon price. Free eBooks/Kindle Books will not provide me with a payment, but are included here for your interest. Thanks
