VEGETABLE GROWING: A Money-Saving Guide

JONATHAN STEVENS    Book Number: 89836    Product format: Paperback

More than a practical guide to frugal allotmenteering, the book includes planning your plot, calculating the cost of growing your own food, and looking after the plants season by season. The author embarked on a mission to find out how much he could save by growing his own fruit and veg, and took on a redundant allotment plot. He has been blogging about the process on his website Real Men Sow, as he learns the hard way what works and what doesn't. A steady stream of incredibly tasty fruit and veg has been finding its way to the kitchens of his friends and family ever since and his light-hearted handy guide shows you everything you need to know. Invest in fruit, look forward to next year, freeze crops, lookout for pests and diseases, think about adding organic matter like animal manure, learn all about building raised beds, deciding what to grow, and fantastic choices like perpetual spinach, all about spacing, time to harvest, recommended varieties, advantages and disadvantages, top tips and when to plant your purple sprouting broccoli and your mangetout, your cucumbers outdoors and all about seed swaps and buy and sell groups on your allotment. 192pp, smart paperback with line art.
