Does anybody know of a good 'beginners' gardening book?

We have a blank canvas of about 5m x 10m (already grassed), and havent got a clue where to start or what to do. We have ideas, but not sure if they are the best ones for our garden.

MrsL is good on plants, and what to use, but its the design layout etc that we are not sure on.

So any recommendations would be appreciated :blush:

The Royal Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Gardening (pub. Dorling Kindersley) is an excellent reference for all gardeners. It goes into he nitty gritty of everything from design to pests. It's a bit of a tome so you migh want to have a look in a public library first, which would be a good starting point anyway.
