Product description


'Packed with handy hints on wildlife-friendly fruit and veg gardening.' -- Amateur Gardening

'Thanks to his simple, down-to-earth style and chatty text, Dirty Nails is well worth a read. A delightful walk through the veg garden year, this book will be invaluable to anyone who's still finding their feet amid the excitement of growing their own food'
-- Garden News

A gardening book has got to be different, How to Grow Your Own Food is just that. This is a thoroughly enjoyable book which you could read at one sitting and delve into week by week. -- Mid Sussex Times


It is his passion for what he does and where he is that inspired 'Dirty Nails' to put pen to paper and record day-to-day life in the vegetable garden. In a compilation of his weekly columns written for the "Blackmore Vale Magazine", Dirty Nails takes you outdoors and 'in amongst it' on the vegetable plot where seeds are sown, plants nurtured, fruits tended and crops harvested. Flora and fauna are noted, too, and delicious and often unusual recipes lovingly supplied. With his guidance - and your gardening - your kitchen garden, vegetable patch or allotment will provide you with the good, fresh, honest and seasonal fruit and vegetables that Dirty Nails has a passion for. And he will also help you sustain the ecological balance of your garden.
