An allotment is one of the best - and cheapest ways - of getting hold of valuable gardening space to grow your own produce, along with being sociable places, great for meeting like-minded people. This stylish book is the fifth title in the highly successful My Cool series and is packed with gorgeous photography and plenty of planting advice. The book takes a peak at allotments and community gardens from all walks of life: from the historic Edgbaston Guinea Gardens in Birmingham, the hortillonnages or floating gardens in Amiens to an artist's rooftop garden in Brussels. Themes include Historic, A Feast of Flowers, Community, Growing inside the Box, Edible Jungle, Food from Home, By Water, Fruit and a Quick Getaway.
