From the basics of climate, geology and soils, through an explanation of plants and their orders to the planning and planting of a variety of vegetables and edible plants, this book gives sound advice in a handy format.

Particular attention is paid to improvements to the soil, covering nutrients, fertilisers, minerals, compost and manures, as well as planting methods [including strip cropping and crop rotation] and protection of the plants, including companion planting, biological control, plant pest controls, barriers and deterrents, organic control and weed management.

This fully illustrated book is rounded off with a list of tasks and monthly reminders, an extensive glossary, useful contacts and further information.
