Paul Rix openly admits at the start of this book, that the information is hand me down, and when you read it, it certainly contains that good value, "from the old boys"
From start to finish its has no end of tips, tricks and hints. The section on tools alone made me think sharpen the spade, never thought of that?
The book is broken into various sections of different crops, from plain veg fruits and salad etc.
The book is so informative of the chief ingredient of growing, the preparation of the soil.
You need to read the book, all the way through, before you begin to plant the crops,as it has a diary, built into the format.
One of the key factors I like about the book its ecological approach to using pesticide's etc only the safest he advocates, and only when totally necessary.
Lets face it unless your blessed with a good garden that you have inherited or one that's well, already well established gardening is hard work, read this book and I think you find, he makes it look a lot less of a chore.
He has a good sense of humour as well, in the book which makes it a pleasure, also its plain talking, I now understand crop rotation, and from a complete novice, feel that I can give gardening a go. and one of the main claims he makes its not going to cost a small fortune,and reading it you can see this, so the book in itself, is a worthwhile investment.
My wife has bought in the past books that look either look like telephone directories or books that seem to be a good advertisement for the Chelsea flower show, which is so off putting.
I am going to stick to this one
As this book is a light read, uncomplicated and simple basic
And makes growing your own very much more feasible.
Thank you Paul Rix for Making life less hard.
