About this book

This book explains how to come through winter with plenty of vegetables stored and others ready for harvest, and gives advice for growing plants through winter for eating during the 'hungry gap' from April to early June.

An invaluable book, intelligent of course, and inspiring too. * Anna Pavord

Charles Dowding has not dug, except to clear perennial weeds and turf, for twenty-five years; he started growing organic vegetables commercially in 1982 and has farmed in both Somerset and France, and had a programme of Gardener's World devoted to his farm. He now crops almost an acre on intensive raised beds, runs courses, and sells salad bags and veg boxes from his farm. He contributed to The Complete Manual of Organic Gardening (Headline 1992), and writes for RHS magazine and Blackmore Vale Magazine. He lives in Shepton Montague, Somerset.
