If you love spending time on your allotment or ‘Grow Your Own’, we’re sure you’ll love this inspirational allotment guide… full of allotment tips, allotment advice and a fantastic reference point if you’re new to allotments, starting a new allotment or just looking for allotment ideas… Its been four years in the development, two years in the writing, 172 pages. The Allotment is not just a history of guinea gardens and pigeon sheds and Dig for Victory, but of the social and historical conditions out of which the allotment arose and inside which it stubbornly persists. From watering to weeding, plating to propagating, this all-encompassing how-to-grow vegetables guide has it all. In-depth crop planners show you when to sow and how to cultivate more than 60 herbs, fruit, and vegetables, including kale, rhubarb, spinach, strawberries, and apples.In this all-encompassing guide, he also advises on clearing an allotment, planning what to grow and how, building compost bins, using raised beds plus detailed instructions on growing the best vegetables and fruit. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. There’s also plenty of practical advice from growing crops that need fleecing in long rows as that’s the shape fleece comes in, to a warning about rotovating a weed-infested plot as it will make the problem worse.
