I love this book, it has plenty of information on growing and looking after your crops as well as useful recipes and herbal remedies.
I love that it includes loads of unusual plants that don't seem to be in most other books and there's plenty of photos too.
If I could only have one book on growing fruit, veg and herbs, it would be this one.
Only one's that come close is anything by Joy Larkum

This is a brilliant book jam packed with loads of information on a huge range of fruit veg and herbs. Its a fantastic reference book but the experienced person will find gaps in the knowledge pretty quickly. As its so big and heavy its a reference book only, but I do reccomend it for those starting out.
