Growing vegetables has always been a popular part of gardening, and even in the smallest plot a surprisingly large number of different varieties can be grown. This practical manual takes a new look at the subject - the plot, soil, preparation and planning, and cultivation techniques, including organic methods. Ideas for using the greenhouse, cloches, tunnels and growing-bags are also included, while an A - Z section covers all the favourite garden vegetables, as well as the more unusual types. The Complete Guide to Vegetable Growing is a superb reference guide for the whole year in the vegetable garden.
