Good Earth Gardening was first published in 2013. This is the first revision and expansion. And about time too.

The vegetables most commonly grown outside in the UK are described in detail and are arranged for quick reference. They are followed by less well known and perennial vegetables for those requiring even more excitement.

The second half of the book focuses on organic gardening techniques particularly to improve and maintain soil health. There are chapters on composting, rotations, seed sowing, green manures, growing in containers and the inevitable (but handy) pest and disease control.

It is rounded off with a look at ways that we can improve our growing in relation to the environment and our connection with the natural world. The book is liberally peppered with drawings to illustrate/distract from the text and everything is treated in a seriously light-hearted fashion.

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned campaigner, Good Earth Gardening should be just the ticket.
