The Best value vegetable growing guide -made even better!
on 25 April 2014
My previous copy of this book dates from 1997,and whilst it was still perhaps the best guide to growing veg and herbs (and certainly the best value for money),it was starting to show it's age,due to advances in growing techniques,varietal choice etc- like everything else,gardening isn't immune to change! Therefore this new additional is very welcome indeed.It provides what it says on the cover,in spadefulls (couldn't resist the pun!).I recommmend this book to novice growers unreservedly- imho it really is the BEST veg guide out there,and is an absolute steal for the money.More experienced growers will still find plenty of information on newer varieties to consider growing.I've had an allotment now for 18 years,and have built up a fair library of gardening books.This is by far the best!
