It inspired me so much that I have been looking at properties with more outside space and changing my future plans.
Can't recommend it highly enough.
I have got the bug so badly now!I already have hens and grow a lot of fruit and veg, and currently trying to convince my husband to let me make an earth oven in the garden!
If this is your thing, this is the book for you, it is jam packed full of the best ideas,tho i have to warn you that its hard to dampen the desire to just get stuck in!
I wholeheartedly recomend this book.
It has put lots of ideas flowing through my head and I can;t look at a garden, back yard, field the same.
Very well presented layout in the book, and I am inspired to go and try some of the things.
Personally I found this is an easy read with lots of great pictures to refer to as I progressed through the book however it should be noted that I started reading with little or no previous knowledge on the subject.
This book covers ideas for various sized plots, from window boxes through to small holdings and several money/energy saving tips throughout.
I fully recommend this god-send of a book to all those who wish to create paradise in their back garden/window box/field/allotment. There is so much we can achieve with a little thought and a great deal of enthusiasm.
