I have masses of gardening books but am new to this series. Excellent books and would highly recommend as they provide enough information to be helpful and informative without being too technical. Great for easy reference and well laid out to find what you are looking for. Would definitely buy others from the series.

I have purchased just about every book on this site on Allotment Gardening,
Being a complete novice like a two year old just learning to talk! All I can say
if I could have purchased this book 1st I would not have spent anymore money
on other books. This book tells you all in simple terms what to do and when to do it!
Which when you're a complete beginner this is what you need!
So don't get any other book until you have got this and read this one!
The chances are you won't buy another one. Happy Gardening

This book is brilliant, by far the best book I have read on the subject, written in easy to read format. It's fantastic for a beginner such as myself. The book covers many aspects from how to choose an allotment site, how to dig your plot etc. there are sections within the book which cover individual veg, times for planting and harvesting etc and pests. i have bought a few books on this subject, all of which are gathering dust with the exception of this book. This truely is the book to have and at the silly price i bought it for is a bargain too. An absolute treasure of a book ...................go buy it!

I agree with all of the other positive reviews about this guide. I spent a couple of weeks looking through the shelves of the local bookstores, some of the books were so complicated you would think I was starting a garden centre not an allotment.

This guide tells you all you need to know - there's a bit about the best layout for the plot, the sowing, planting , harvesting and pruning times for crops, sections on vegetables and fruits, tips on digging over an uncared for plot and then keeping it going etc.

I'm sure that the most dedicated allotment holder might want a bit more detail, but I certainly expect this book will do me just fine for the first two or three years.
