5.0 out of 5 stars A fab start to my vegetable garden, 23 Jan 2007
This review is from: RHS Grow Your Own: Veg (Royal Horticultural Society Grow Your Own) (Hardcover)
I bought this book as I have been watching the series and I was not disappointed as it is very well organised and informative. The first 50 pages or so are made up of sections about: plot (size, raised beds/containers, early/main crops); preparing the plot; a step by step guide to growing and extending the season; problems; and a seasonal calendar (what to do and when to do it). The rest of the book (some 150 pages or so) is about the veg. Split into different categories, each vegetable has 4 pages dedicated to it (although one of these pages is a picture). Each vegetable has information on: the best sites and soils; sowing and planting; cultivating; harvest; storing and cooking; pest and disease; recommended varieties (along with pictures). Each also has a useful small calendar showing which are the suitable times to sow, plant and harvest.

All in all I think it's an excellent book. It is well written (except for one typo I found in the potato section!) has beautiful pictures and all the information I wanted... even a glossary to explain all those terms I'm unfamiliar with. If you are new to vegetable gardening like me, you won't be disappointed.
