Things to do in the garden during lockdown, day 19: relax, enjoy your garden and read a book

It's going to be a toasty Easter Saturday. Sit back and enjoy your garden. It's a perfect time to enjoy some garden related reading.

Garden Design books
Reading in the Easter Sunshine with under-gardener Huxley

I am reading 'A Sting in the Tale' by Professor of Bumblebees at Sussex University Dave Goulson. I would also thoroughly recommend his book 'The Garden Jungle' which could well change the way you think about gardening. That and Nigel Dunnett's Naturalistic Planting Design are two books that really make me think about why I garden and how I can ensure my designs not only look stunning, but are sustainable and are of year round benefit to wildlife.

I don't keep bees, but I am very tempted...
