Growing vegetables can be a tricky business, and even the most experienced of gardeners will occasionally need to turn to a trusted tome for some handy advice. The Veg Grower's Almanac is just such a book - a compendium of month-by-month tips, advice and items of interest. With sage advice from old Gardeners' World hands coupled with tips on the best varieties to grow and timely advice on how best to look after your plot, this attractive collection blends practical advice with evocative writing and fascinating facts.

It is illustrated throughout with charming drawings and sketches, The Veg Grower's Almanac is a welcome additional to any gardener's shelf - from hands-on instructions for preparing a seedbed or trying new varieties of tomato to fascinating little-known facts about our favourite crops.
