Things have been a bit quiet on the latest news front, although our members and those of you who follow our blog will know that we have been very busy in the run up to the start of the sowing season. Winter time is the perfect opportunity to catch up on some inspirational reading before all those seedlings need plenty of attention. We have been very fortunate to have received a pile of books - the latest garden inspiration and together we've been working our way through some of them to recommend our favorites.

Check out our blog for a fabulous book giveaway of the ever popular The Flower Farmer's Year by Georgie Newbery in time for World Book Day and over the next few weeks to find out about some of the newest gardening books around. 

It won't be long before you can give in to 'sow fever' and what better way to relax after a hard day's sowing than with a good book. It's all food for the soul.
