This review is from: New Urban Farmer (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What this book provides is one person's experiences and anecdotes and tales of growing their own, which whilst entertaining and enjoyable and something to discuss whilst sharing coffee's with your friends, if you are after a more thorough guide to growing your own I would look elsewhere.

I would describe this book as a `lifestyle' advice book which in this case presents itself in an idealistic and pretty world of red brick terrace middle classness complete with Cath Kidston bunting, shaker cabinets, Le Creuset pots and Aga ovens which from a style point of view may seem lovely but ultimately leaves the reader wanting more.

I ordered this book for my better half who enjoys this type and style of publication and the proof of this books success (or lack of) is `The New urban Farmer' rather being a serious guide to refer to, has now become an ornament gathering dust on the shelf, alongside the Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay cookbooks.
