    Isabella Beeton (1836-1865) is best known for her cookery book, but she also produced this volume on horticulture. Packed with advice on sowing, planting, tools and equipment, it contains chapters on trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables, and one for each month of the gardener's year. Much of her advice is as valid today as when it was written in the 1860s - for a burgeoning middle class for whom gardening was a novelty.
