I had big hopes for this book but it did not deliver.I was hoping to read how the contestents got the results they got and the downfalls.The book is very basic not all vegtables are mentioned the only good thing about the book are the recipes (some from the programme) in the last chapters.some of the information given differs from other good gardening books such as sowing sweet peas in a seed tray.If the book had include more from the contestants and the programmes it would have been very enjoyable

This book inspired me to do something with my front patch which is now the "best in street". Packed full of advice on growing plants, arranging them plus some yummy recipes. A no nonsense entertaining book.

I really enjoyed the T.V series and had to buy the book, which was just as good. It has good recipes in and how to do the flowering arrangements. I find it very help full with good tips I use or will use next growing season.

I have just bought this book and had a quick skim! The first thing to say it is beautiful and will grace any coffee table with something for everyone. So much more than the telly programme.

Chapters on welcoming garden guests (hedgehogs etc), growing your own (as easy or as complicated as you wish with a difficulty rating), pest control, flower arrangements and the most delicious recipes.

Just planted my peas and beans and thought I had better have a check with Tessa Evelegh to see if |I had done the right thing! Have learnt that squash provide an alternative mulch keeping the plants moist and a reminder to protect my peas from the birds and insects with a fine mesh.

The Patch is a fun, practical book with very little on straight carrots and beans!

However there is plenty of info on organic gardening, fertilisers and pest and disease control without being overwhelming.
