I have Zoe Devlin's book - it's very good. That was an interesting article about her in last weekend's Irish Times.
The 'Collins Pocket Guide to Freshwater Life' is very useful for pond owners or those living near a lake/stream/river/bog. (Is that everybody?)
'Mushrooms and Toadstools' in the same series is very good too.
Helen Dillon's 'On Gardening' is a lovely, personal account of one woman's obsession.
None of the above are new but they are all worth having.
