With so many ex­cel­lent gar­den­ing books around, your favourite gardener will be spoiled for choice! If ed­i­bles are their thing, check out the Never Mind the Bur­docks se­ries on for­ag­ing by Eden Project ex­pert Emma Gunn. With a book for each sea­son, packed with great ad­vice and in­ter­est­ing flavours, they’ll cast a new and tasty per­spec­tive on coun­try­side walks ( nev­er­mindthe­bur­docks.co.uk).

Mean­while, for a holis­tic ap­proach to gar­den­ing, try The Al­manac: A Sea­sonal Guide to 2019 by Lia Leen­dertz (Mitchell Bea­z­ley, £10). Stars and sto­ries, bak­ing and bee­hives, it is per­fect to add depth and tex­ture to the com­ing year.

Bril­liant and Wild: A Gar­den From Scratch in a Year by Lucy Bel­lamy (Pim­per­nel Press, £20) will of­fer hope and in­spi­ra­tion to any­one faced with a blank can­vas while, if the can­vas is any­thing but blank and could use pep­ping up and shak­ing down, try Nick Bai­ley’s Re­vive Your Gar­den (Kyle Books, £25). And al­ways wor­thy of a men­tion are The Bum­ble­bee Flies Any­way (Blooms­bury Wildlife, 16.99), a poignant tale of rewil­d­ing an ur­ban gar­den from Kate Bradbury, and The Story of the English Gar­den (Pav­il­ion Books, £25) by Am­bra Ed­wards.
