The Bedside Book Of The Garden - D.G. Hessayon as the title indicates, this is nice bedtime reading. Not too taxing, but interesting. It certainly leaves you wanting to know more though, as it covers a lot very shallowly. And it would be nice if more of the pictures, especially the botanical drawings, were better captioned.
