Jane Eastoe guides you through allotment life, from how to find an allotment, how to plan one out, what to grow, crop rotation, how to store your harvest plus some of the best recipes so you enjoy the fruits of your labour.
An allotment is one of the best - and cheapest ways - of getting hold of valuable gardening space to grow your own. Plus it offers one of the most relaxing atmospheres with the chance to mix with fellow gardeners.
Your allotment can provide enough fruit, veg and herbs to feed most small families (and cut flowers to adorn the kitchen table) - produce that will taste and look much better than anything shop bought. This handy guide includes great gardening information for each crop - the obvious to the not so obvious - from potatoes and carrots to aubergines and chillies. What to grow when, what to grow where, plus a calendar of work for the laziest to the most energetic allotment holder.
This is the easiest guide to getting starting on allotment life and in addition to all the practical gardening techniques, it gives background information on local authority control, self-management options, how to protect your allotment and details on the cost of having one.
