Allotments are enjoying renewed popularity as more and more people are becoming interested in growing their own fruit and vegetables. However setting-up and maintaining a plot can seem daunting, particularly for the inexperienced vegetable grower. Here Caroline Foley provides a complete reference for everything to do with managing an allotment, from soil and plot organisation to propagation and pruning. Caroline includes a wealth of information on vegetable, fruit and herb varieties as well as invaluable advice on harvesting and storage. Top tips for dealing with pests and diseases are also covered, along with the essential tasks to tackle on a weekly basis in order to keep on top of the plot.
This book is perfect for all types of plotholder, from the non-working person who can spend time every day caring for the plot to the busy parent and worker who only has an hour or two at the weekend. All practices and methods covered are organic, and throughout the book there will be advice from seasoned plotholders and various examples of 3-year cycles. This really is the definitive guide to running a successful and productive allotment.
