Product Description

Review

'Packed with handy hints on wildlife-friendly fruit and veg gardening.' -- Amateur Gardening

'Thanks to his simple, down-to-earth style and chatty text, Dirty Nails is well worth a read. A delightful walk through the veg garden year, this book will be invaluable to anyone who's still finding their feet amid the excitement of growing their own food'
-- Garden News

A gardening book has got to be different, How to Grow Your Own Food is just that. This is a thoroughly enjoyable book which you could read at one sitting and delve into week by week. -- Mid Sussex Times

From the Author

Special thanks in producing On The Plot must go to my dear friend Tony Benge. He and I spent many absorbing hours shooting the instructional photos which are a feature of this book. Plus the publishers and designers who, I hope you will agree, have done a beautiful yet unpretentious job of packaging it all together in such an inspirational and mouth-watering fashion. I truly hope you enjoy reading and applying On The Plot in the garden and kitchen where you live as much as I had fun writing it. With my very best wishes, Joe.

34 of 34 people found the following review helpful By Tessa Merry on 19 July 2007
Format: Paperback
This delightful book is a practical guide to enjoying the growing as much as the eating of your own food. It clearly presents a week by week guide to sowing, planting, nurturing and harvesting your own crops, plus some veggie recipes to further enjoy the fruits of your labour. Along side this are notes to engender closer observation of the wildlife encountered while in the garden or allotment and historical background to the food grown. It would be a stimulating book to encourage a beginner but being informative on many levels it is a really rewarding read for all who are willing to get their nails dirty.

Format: Paperback
What a wonderful book I have just read! It reads like a novel with the main character being 'Dirty Nails'. And what is it? A gardening book!! But it is more than that - wildlife, histories of various vegetables, soil information and for both the experienced and inexperienced gardener a week-by-week guide to planning, sowing, looking after and finally harvesting your very own veggies. Beautifully laid out and with a comprehensive contents page and extensive index, this is DEFINITELY one for the Gardener's library.

A delightful read. A "must" for ANY gardener. I felt so sad when I turned the page for the last week of January and found the year's week-by-week guide had finished. I wanted to just start all over again!

Format: Paperback
This book is a must any gardener. Not only is it a great read it is also it packed full of information for all levels of gardeners. What is really wonderful is the inclusion of wildlife stories and snippets. It reminds us that gardening is not a chore in any way; it is a wonderful blessing. We must remember when we are digging the plot or planting the seed, that being out in the open at one with nature is one of the world's sweetest pleasures. Take time to smell the flowers, take time to make a friend with a robin, pause for a cup of tea. Thank you Mr. Dirty Nails.
