Over the years I have written much about the humble potato. Through articles and books I have covered everything from how many to grow, how to grow them, how to store them, growing for show, and what diseases or other problems a grower may encounter. I’ve even given talks on growing the simple spud! What I hadn’t done to date is write a book solely about the potato, with that knowledge all in one place.

I often receive emails from readers of my blog and newsletter asking for more information on potato growing so I thought it was about time I got all that information collated into a book so that growing can be a simple task for all – no matter what space you have or resources available to you.

I firmly believe that the potato is the most important and versatile crop the home grower can grow. It’s also one of the most underrated crops. When you’ve tasted a home grown new potato, harvested earlier the same day, I’m sure you will agree.

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.
