Our Books

Vegetable Growing, Allotmenting, Preserving & Storing, Jams & Keeping Poultry / Chickens!

As you probably gathered from the site, we’ve been living a frugal life and growing vegetables for nearly 40 years. In our books we share our experience and knowledge.

Take control of your life, grow your own food and preserve it.

The first book, Vegetable Growing Month by Month, has become one of the most popular gardening books in the UK because it gives straightforward advice for growing vegetables. Whether you are growing on a patio in containers or an allotment plot, there’s help in here.

You can buy signed copies direct from us, all with free seeds, or you can buy (unsigned) at a discount from online bookstores like Amazon. The books are also available from all good bookstores and now in many garden centres as well.

Reviews for Our Books

 

"Britain's greatest allotment authority"
Emma Townshend in the Independent on Sunday

I think it's just great. Another down to earth book for down to earth people, teaching not preaching how it's done.
Mr R W Braker

Forget about any glossy pictures, what's in this book is solid words of advice, written in plain to understand English from a grower who's had frustrating years of experience behind him in trying to grow nutritious vegetables, whilst at the same time running a business and raising a family.
Medwyn Williams MBE FNVS
Winner of 10 RHS Gold Medals
at Chelsea for vegetables

I've never made jams, chutneys etc. before but can't stop now. This book makes it so easy. Takes all the fear out of jam making.
Mrs S Collett

An informative book based on lots of practical experience and with loads of top tips, as well as a wide range of delicious recipes.
