A comprehensive guide for beginners
on 15 September 2007
A newcomer to vegetable gardening will find everything they need to know in this book - from laying out their garden, choosing tools and growing from seed to choosing varieties and battling pests and diseases.
Full colour photographs make explanations clear and provide inspiration. There's detailed instructions on growing all the common vegetables, plus a few more exotic varieties you can try as you progress.
If you're worried about learning Latin names, don't worry - there are none here. There is a nice section on which garden tasks are going to become chores (and hence should be minimized) and which are more enjoyable. There's also a very good year planner, helping you to do vegetable garden tasks as and when they become necessary.
A good choice for a new gardener, and it would make a great gift.
