Synopsis

The Organic Vegetable Gardener by Yvonne Cuthbertson

This book offers everything readers need to know to grow tasty organic vegetables outdoors - whether in a garden, allotment or on their window ledge! It is suitable for beginners and includes a handy directory. This latest title, from a growing and successful series, is by an UK author. A productive, attractive vegetable garden bursting with colour and flavour forms the heart and soul of any garden, no matter how small. The satisfaction gained from knowing where your food has come from, that it is fresh, seasonal and free from toxic chemicals cannot be beaten. The Organic Vegetable Gardener allows you to discover the joy of growing your own mouth-watering organic crops, covering all aspects of preparation and cultivation through to harvesting. All the practical information you'll need to get started is covered - choosing the best site, preparation and design. Sowing seed, growing plants indoors and outdoors, in containers or in beds, crop rotation, dealing with pests and diseases and harvesting are also explained in detail. Finally, a comprehensive directory of popular vegetable species and varieties provides an easy-reference guide when choosing what to grow.
