VEGETABLE GROWING: A Money-Saving Guide


VEGETABLE GROWING: A Money-Saving Guide

JONATHAN STEVENS    Book Number: 83686    Product format: Paperback

Here's a friendly, practical guide to growing your own produce on an allotment. When Jonathan was in his early twenties he dug some raised beds in the garden to help his mother so that she could grow vegetables, and suddenly realised that he too was hooked on gardening. He investigated social media only to find that thousands of others loved growing vegetables too, and decided to weigh everything that he grew, comparing them against supermarket prices. The savings were immense, and Jonathan set up a website, Real Men Sow, to record the process as he took the plunge with a redundant allotment plot. Covering such topics as getting started, growing guides, sowing seeds, pests and diseases, harvesting and preparing an overgrown plot, this is a cornucopia of practical advice, and we learn both the pitfalls and the benefits of taking on an allotment. As well as the savings against shop prices, you just can't beat the amazing taste of ready-harvested produce, but if you are not really into vegetables you can always try growing soft fruit. Just think of all those luscious strawberries, raspberries and blackberries to feast on, or to turn into jam. A super light-hearted read that makes you want to grab a spade and start digging! Softback, 192pp, sketches.
