Product description

Review

"Provides essential basics about varieties and [...] easily absorbed panels of information giving key facts. There is stuff on where to sow and grow both the usual and more unusual vegetables, herbs and salads - from how to prepare your soil to how and when to harvest the produce." (The Telegraph)

"Anyone wanting to grow their own veg should pick up this handy book." (Daily Express)

"You could be forgiven for thinking you need to splash out on chatty, glitzy hardbacks, but all the information you need (and I mean all of it) is there in the paperback Expert series that Dr David Hessayon has been turning out since the 1970s on almost every aspect of gardening." (Stephen Anderton, The Times)

What is there to say, he is the master of succinct and correct information.
Up-to-date, and ever so useful. Added to the shelf with all his other reference books.
With the use of pesticides wholesale, and new DNA breeding of all plants, we need his advice.

I purchased this for my hubby who has installed some raised beds in our garden to grow veg in. We used to have an allotment a few years ago but since giving it up we have got a little rusty and needed a reference/guide on what to grow and how to look after plants. This book is perfect for what we needed.

I knew this would be a good reference book as I used to have a flower expert book and that was very helpful too.

I'm looking forward to homegrown veg this year.

I would recommend

The best book on veg growing. I have 3 copies of various ages. Always reach for this to find distances and depths more than anything. Some techniques are a little out of date and as others mention, no section or garlic. Covers varieties, when to sow/harvest and how to cook. This is THE manual for allotments and veg growers alike.

The first copy I bought, in 1970 something or other, has finally given up the ghost and this 'new' edition has replaced it. Thankfully the intervening years hasn't provoked re-branding, modernising or generally mucking about. The improvements are as they should be, move with the times but nothing fancy. A most excellent guide to vegetable growing.

This was recommended to me for my son-in-law. I had it sent direct to him and can only report on what I have been told. I was told that each vegetable had a page dedicated to itself. As my son-in-law is a novice gardener I thought that would be ideal. He certainly was pleased.

Bought this volume to replace our first one, which was falling to pieces because of constant use. It has been updated, and my husband treats it like his bible. Very informative, and written in laymans language. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of Dr Hessayons books.
