There are a lot of new gardening books to help you get ready for planting and landscaping. Gardening books make great gifts or inspire you to improve your own backyard garden no matter your age or physical ability.
There are a lot of good authors who will help inspire you to decorate, cook, preserve food, or craft using your home grown flowers and vegetables. Be adventurous and at least try a new idea once a month.
I always like to visit books.google.com to find out of print gardening books. There are so many wonderful books there.
