The Pocket Expert

HOW often have you been out in the garden (or garden centre) and wished you could quickly consult one of your reference books to find out about a plant's requirements? Lugging heavy books around is hardly a practical solution - so these new pocket-sized guides to trees and shrubs, flowers and garden troubles are just what you need.

For small books, The Pocket Flower Expert and The Pocket Tree and Shrub Expert are absolutely packed with information and photographs. Compact and authoritative, they're ideal to take with you when you're shopping for new plants.

The Pocket Garden Troubles Expert covers all the major pests and diseases that attack roses, lawns, vegetables and fruiting plants, with colour illustrations to make identifying the culprit easy.

Weeds are also covered in detail and there are lots of handy tips to help you not only banish the bugs, but prevent them coming back as well.

These books are written for British conditions, so you need to add six months to the flowering times, but despite this they're very useful - and brilliant value at $14.95.
