Gardeners are so easy to buy presents for, and there’s something in every price range, from a packet of seeds to designer wellies and fancy tools.

For those stormy days when we can’t get out to the garden, it’s lovely to curl up with a gardening book indoors. In Kiltumper: A Year in an Irish Garden by Niall Williams and Christine Breen brings you on a journey through a couple’s garden in rural Clare, month by month. It’s full of relatable gardening information, but is also a compelling tale of the impending arrival of wind turbines close by that threatens the idyllic Eden they have created for themselves — an absorbing and thought-provoking read.
