LoveReading View on The RHS Allotment Handbook - The Expert Guide for Every Fruit and Veg Grower

A really good guide to allotment basics - from first picking up your spade to harvesting your crops. Written in an encouraging style – the novice won’t feel overwhelmed by technical detail and should find plenty of inspiration in the fruit and vegetables, herbs and flowers recommended for growing. I liked the information boxes recommending varieties and the “at a glance” section, the choice of illustrations and how easy it is to use.  Would make a lovely gift for anyone starting out with an allotment.
