I'm looking for a gift for my BIL who has recently taken an interest in organic gardening . I was thinking of getting a book for his Christmas present but don't know where to start.

Any and all suggestions welcome.

Compost is the key to organic gardening, it always comes back to your compost set up, and a decent wormery makes a big difference.

grow lots of comfrey,

Lots of different size funky trugs will make him very happy. Cheap at the farmer's merchants.

there are so many websites and forums, it hard to know which path he will follow,
