    The dark evenings and wild weather mean that practical gardening is somewhat limited, so this is the perfect time to pick up a book that can be read for pleasure as well as instruction.  A Countrywoman’s Notes (Frances Lincoln £9.99)* is just such a book.  Written by one of the 20th centuries iconic gardeners, the late Rosemary Verey, this small volume is a reprint of the original which was published in 1989.  The notes follow the year  and are accompanied by attractive contemporary engravings.  It would make a very nice Christmas present.
