Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables guides you through the process of creating and nurturing your fruit and vegetable garden. With a little preparation and enthusiasm even the beginner gardener will be able to harvest produce from their own plot in no time. Alison Chivers has drawn on her knowledge - inherited from three generations of gardeners - to create an easy-to-use guide, complete with a calendar of what to sow when. This is accompanied by Mary Canning's photographs of luscious and inspiring gardens from around the country. Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables contains information about choosing a plot, sowing and planting seeds and seedlings, choosing the right fruit and vegetables for your climate zone, organic gardening tips, dealing with pests and problems as well as detailed information on vegetables, fruits and herbs for every backyard and environment.
