Synopsis

Charles Dowding draws on his years of experience, to show how easy it is to start a new vegetable garden. Any plot -- whether a building site, overgrown with weeds or unwanted lawn -- can be turned into a beautiful and productive vegetable area. Charles's no-nonsense and straightforward advice is the perfect starting point for the beginner or experienced gardener.

The book takes you step-by-step through:

* Planning and early stages
* Clearing the ground
* Mulch - what, why, how?
* Minimizing digging
* Sowing and planting across the seasons
* Growing in polytunnels and greenhouses

It is filled with labour-saving ideas and the techniques that Charles uses to garden so successfully, and is illustrated throughout with photos and tales from Charles's first year in his new vegetable garden.
