If you're lucky enough to be allocated a plot (or half-plot) at your local allotment, this guide will quickly get you up to speed with getting the most from your plot.

Designing your plot layout to work best for you and to minimise problems via crop rotation is tackled first, followed by a directory of vegetables to grow (both the usual suspects and more unusual crops) , techniques to use and ending with a guide to the seasonal year are all explained in detail, accompanied by lavish photographs and sprinkled with seasonal recipes. The allotment tradition of recycling anything that comes to hand is also catered for with a number of projects to try throughout the book.

With this guide to hand, you'll have a prize winning plot in half the time and be the envy of all the 'old hands'.

Would buy again. My only criticism is that (since it doesn't give exact months) I would like more of an indication of when it is "early Spring" when "late spring" etc......maybe a list of what is likely to be happening then in nature to help less knowledgeable gardeners plan. Otherwise can't fault it.

I really like the book but it is not for me but a Christmas present for someone. It looks informative and if I had an allotment I am sure I would find the book interesting. I definitely recommend it to all those gardeners out there
