About this book

More and more people are becoming interested in growing their own fruit and vegetables as food prices rise and awareness of food provenance and chemical usage increases, but getting started can seem daunting and many are deterred by a lack of knowledge and time. This book sets out to overcome these problems. With clear practical instructions and inspirational pictures this book aims to demystify the growing of fruit and veg and shows that, with the right approach, it can be done successfully as a weekend project or slotted into a busy week.

The book explains simple short cuts, unusual low maintenance strategies and promotes a relaxed, robust attitude to growing-your-own which really works. The book has been shot by the well-respected garden photographer Clive Nichols in the author's own weekend vegetable garden over two years where the principles promoted in this book have been tried, tested and proven. Filled with fantastic images and sound horticultural advice, the book will appeal to the complete novice planning a new vegetable garden as well as the more experienced gardener who is looking to save time and increase productivity.
