Book Description

23 Jun 2010
Why, I hear you ask, do we need yet another book on ‘grow your own’? Why should this one be better than those written by ‘experts’? Well, I have yet to read one which is of much use to a beginner. This book sets out to explain not only WHAT to do, but HOW to do it, as well as WHY. The main premise of this book is to help you SAVE money. It is full of little hints and tips, many simply common sense, which even more experienced gardeners will find useful. No one knows it all, never has done, never will, certainly not me! But I feel sad, and a little frustrated when I see people working so hard to try to grow their own, only to lose heart and give up because of poor results or it gets too expensive the way they are trying to do things. Follow the suggestions in ‘Beyond the Potting Shed’, at least those which fit your circumstances, and enjoy the rewards...

5.0 out of 5 stars Making life less hard. 1 Aug 2010
By keithy
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 22 Mar 2011
By Suzanne
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am disappointed in this book having read the reviews and the description. It goes into alot of boring, very obvious detail and expected some humour. I have read about half of it and move on to something else. I will return to the book and hope it gets better.
