    What a great book! Full of gorgeous pictures showing you how you can grow your own fruit and veg in a very small space. But not only that, the text is really informative, telling you how to make the most of the space you have as well as introducing composting and other gardening topics.Most gardening books put me off before I've started warning me of every single thing that can go wrong - carrot fly, mildew etc. This book does have a section on pests and diseases but is written with a real 'give it a go' attitude - giving great solutions to many common problems e.g. companion planting. At the back there's a selection of recipes to cope with any gluts you might have.Even if you're a really busy person, you should have time to give something a try from this book with very little effort. Great fun for kids too.No garden? Don't worry - get this book for inspiration - as well as a few window boxes and you'll be well away!

    Well the reviews say it all. Very interesting read, and makes a nice coffee table book as well. Nice little funny comments from an author who is interesting, passionate about his subject, and blessed with a ready wit. I just can't wait to get a wormery...

    A superb book, full of inspiring ideas for the garden. It is written in a very user friendly way, and explains very clearly how to achieve the gardening ideas. The empahsis is on growing fruit and veg, and combining this into your existing garden. It is for all gardens, large and small, and for all gardnerers, expert and novice alike. I am now just waiting for the rain and the snow to go, and then I will be out in my garden, planting a great combination of fruit and veg, along side my ornamental plants. Happy planting to you all!

    This is simply a delightful book. It is incredibly useful with all sorts of practical advice and great ideas about setting up your garden, what to grow, when to grow it, how to make the best use of your space, etc... Although the book is simply packed with information and ideas, it is all presented in a very user-friendly way so that reading the book is as enjoyable and fun as it is useful. In my opinion, a must buy!

    This really is the ideal book for the novice who simply doesn't have the facility of a big garden or allotment, nor the knowledge and experience! I took it out of the library first, along with several other books on a similar theme and liked this one so much I bought it. It gives helpful instructions for the whole year and even if you only have a window box, there is something for you in here.It gives helpful advice, some very neat and novel tips and is written in a style that keeps you interested. The book doesn't assume that you're Percy Thrower (for younger readers please Google him!) but nor does it talk down to you or patronise you. It doesn't assume that you have limitless funds and it truly engenders a love of simply growing 'stuff'.A delightful and extremely useful book for the novice and the expert alike, I think.
