Dig for Victory – The Wartime Monthly Growing Guides in One Volume

This educational campaign has had a massive influence on how we grow vegetables for the last 80 years. The government guides from those dark days of the war are often as valid today as they were then.

I have collected that original monthly growing advice issued by the government from the war and put it into one volume with a commentary explaining where and why best practice has changed for the modern gardener.

RRP £12.99

How to Store Your Home Grown Produce

It’s great growing your own and eating freshly picked fruit and vegetables, but what do you do with the inevitable gluts? We’ve faced that problem over the 40 years we’ve been growing our own and this book passes on our answers.

We cover traditional methods of storing produce and honestly explain where they work well and are appropriate – as well as where they are not the best method with the equipment and time available to us today.

RRP £9.99

Easy Jams, Chutneys and Preserves

From the author of one of the UK’s best selling gardening books, this collaboration with his wife brings their favourite recipes to you. Including the history of making preserves, detailed how-to guides and equipment lists, plus plenty of recipes to get you started.

RRP £8.99

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.

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.
