The Allotment Keeper's Handbook

by Jane Perrone - £14.99  Atlantic Books (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843545484 | ISBN 10: 1843545489

The Allotment Keeper's Handbook is a no-nonsense guide to managing your own organic fruit and vegetable patch.
 
Packed with invaluable advice - from how to choose an allotment and test its soil, to knowing your chickweed from your chicory - The Allotment Keeper's Handbook offers an enjoyable and inspiring shortcut through the trials, errors and frustrations of starting your own plot.
 
Dispensing with the strict calendar-based advice usually found in gardening manuals, Jane Perrone steers a carefree course through the gardener's year. Featuring monthly to-do lists, 'spotlights' on unusual vegetables, a history of allotments, an exhaustive section on crop rotation, a chapter devoted to harvesting and storage and a glossary to cut through garden jargon, this book is all you will need to get growing.
