Industry Reviews
A really great book if you're thinking about growing an edible garden. Broken down very simply, with some lovely recipes too - good job @huwsgarden -- Jamie Oliver

It's an easy-to-read guide to how a plot the size of a small family garden can provide you with affordable and nourishing fruit and veg, every day of the year. * Countryside (Book of the Month, April 2024) *

The book is just a guide, they say. People can do as little or as much they feel able, and build up over time. If you do not feel up to the book's various DIY projects, which include building hot, raised and hoop beds you could always "call a friend" suggests Richards. -- Sharon Smith * The Daily Telegraph *
