I have gardenened, like many of us for years. Good practical growing information. I had not really looked into many gardening books but this one I beleive is great. I always have surplus of many things and the recipe ideas are really good for changing or presenting in another way, something I had been doing the same for years. I like the planting cycle tables too. Lovely photos.
I bought this for a friend who has just started to grow her own veg. She says that it is in continual use and uses it more than any other gardening book she has. Good articles and well written. Very easy to follow and understand. If I had a garden, I would buy it for myself.
This book is one of my favourites, which I have read. I decided to buy it, because it have lots of usefully facts and helpfully hits. The recipes are a added bonus. It is a must with anyone that is going to grown vegetables. Young or old.
Purchased this book (and its companion) for my son in law who has recently taken up gardening. He found that it is not only theraputic, but provides healthy excercise and with the organic food produced as the ultimate payoff. As an allotmenteer myself, I owned a copy of this book and found both it and its companion an invaluable source of information. Amazon was selling both volumes at an amazingly competitive price.
