Posted by Michael Perry on

Here's my look at 5 of the hottest books right now!

Making Winter by Emma Mitchell
Published by LOM Art

After lusting after her Instagram posts for nigh on a year, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Emma Mitchell's first book! There's a whole bunch of feel-good craft projects for those dark autumn and winter months, plus tips on how to make flat-lays as good as she does! She wrote for me once too, hahah, I am a groupie....!

With such varying advice and tips for lawns and lawn care available these days, David Hedges-Gower (such a cool name) has brought together his years of experience into a definitive guide. After all, a happy lawn means a healthy lawn!

How to Grow by Hollie Newton
Published by Orion Spring

Hollie's ballsy writing style makes growing as simple as can be, without ever being patronising. It's a 'warts and all' guide, which will have you chuckling at times. But, most importantly, it'll have you feeling confident enough to get growing!!

I could not put this book down when it first arrived! Perhaps that's the nosey neighbour in me. This book is like that old programme 'Through the Keyhole', but for gardens. It's chunky too, with divine photography, so clear some space on that coffee table!

When you search for this book online, the results can be quite varied, so be warned! 100% laugh-out loud, this book gives the story behind some of the more unusual (and cheeky) plant names and is written by colourful gardening personality, Allan. Just don't read it on the train, you may get some looks!
