Fantastic guide for those starting out.
on 24 March 2012
I actually picked up a copy of this from my local garden centre rather than from Amazon. It is quite possibly the best book on growing your own produce I have ever owned and I'd recommend it for those just starting to grow their own stuff as well as for those more experienced.
The book even has a section which gives a month by month guide to the food gardener's year, what jobs to do, what to sow undercover, what to sow directly, what to harvest etc.
There are more detailed chapters for popular veg choices, detailing how to grow, when to grow, when to harvest, pests and other useful information. As well as these chapters being about veg, there is also mention of soft fruit, such as strawberries and popular garden herbs.
With this book anyone can competently grow their own food.
