A guide to self-sustainablity in either the city or the countryside for both the beginner gardener and the experienced farmhand. It takes the reader through all the stages of crop growing, with helpful drawings throughout. A recipe section suggests delightful and nourishing ways to consume the grown produce.
Growing your own fruit and vegetables is surprisingly easy whatever the size of your garden or allotment. You don't need to be entirely self-sufficient but there's nothing more satisfying than being able to harvest your own tomatoes, snip a few leaves from a salad bed or make strawberry jam from home-grown strawberries. And by planting some easy-to-grow flowering plants it's perfectly possible to have freshly picked cut flowers to decorate your table. Accompanying the BBC Two series, The Big Allotment Challenge: The Patch celebrates our burgeoning interest in knowing where our food comes from and is a practical guide to making your garden a haven of productivity. With essential know-how on everything from soil and compost to pruning and pests, the book is aimed at novice gardens. There's an A-Z section on easy-to-grow vegetables, fruit, herbs and cut flowers; foolproof recipes for transforming your produce into delicious jams, jellies, chutneys and cordials; and stunningly simple flower arrangements.
The Royal Horticultural Society The Half Hour Allotment (first published in 2005) has been a best-selling gardening title for many years. This new edition re-presents the classic in a fresh new illustrated format with hundreds of new photographs and a bright new cover design. The book shows you how to manage your allotment and enjoy fresh vegetables through the year on just half an hour's work a day with weekends off. It combines expert advice from Lia Leendertz and the Royal Horticultural Society and time-saving ideas for planning the most effective use of your time and energy, giving you something to eat fresh every day of the year and ensure bumper crops in summer! Lia Leendertz, the best-selling author of The Almanac, is an organic gardener with a great sensitivity for the environment so the book is a gentle and thoughtful read as well as being a bible for productive and time-starved gardeners.
