Media reviews

Good for the shed - with fewer photographs but the same basic, delightfully written information. It contains everything you need to know about growing fruit and vegetables, with detailed cultivation instructions, as well as design ideas for kitchen gardens and vegetable plots. Homes & Gardens A book for the thoughtful kitch gardener, who has time to read around their subject and who requires more than the bare minimum of cultivation facts. Professional Gardener Enthusiasm, coupled with a meticulous examination of the when, the where and what of self-grow, make the subject of DIY horticulture both comprehensible and delightful to read, even for the least green-fingered of souls. Eastern Daily Press Lots of information for the beginner. Let's Talk Seems at time to be a part poetry volume, so passionate are Anna Pavord's reveries over her subject matter. Newcastle Upon Tyne Evening Chronicle
