Historically an important social tradition, allotments are now increasingly popular with a younger audience and with families who want to try growing their own organic produce.
Here we show you how to go about finding an allotment, what to grow, how to maintain interest and get the most benefit from being an allotment holder.
No previous gardening experience is assumed and everything is presented in a simple, step-by-step style.
Successful Allotments is endorsed by the HDRA and the Soil Association, so you know you can trust all the organic advice.
I met the author of this book, Pauline Pears, many years ago when she was at Bocking – I don’t suppose she will remember being famous and all! Nice one, Pauline – if you read this.
Through Amazon you can pick up both new and second hand copies for as little as a penny plus postage.
Amazon Reviews of Successful Allotments:
“I am a really enthusiastic gardener, and its not very often that I find a book that provides me with exactly the information I want and need to get out into the garden straight away.
I have just got an allotment and the Green Essentials Successful Allotment organic gardening Guide provided me with concise, easy-to-read information that enabled me to set about creating an ORGANIC allotment immediately!
It is obvious that it has been written by someone that is a gardener themselves and knows what fellow gardeners are looking for in a book.
Oh and the other great thing about it is that its cheap as chips and small enough to fit into your coat pocket!”
