About the book: 

Now, more than ever, the desire for fresh, nutritious produce, plus the spiralling cost of living, has encouraged more and more people to grow their own fruit and vegetables, regardless of the size of their garden, or even whether they have a garden at all! With the updated and revised Food from your garden as a reference book, keen gardeners will discover how easy it is to grow vegetables, fruit and herbs in the average to small suburban garden, as well as in containers. 

This title offers advice on how to plan and prepare for planting, the importance of soil, compost and feeding, and how to plant your food crops. 

There are detailed instructions on pruning methods, companion plants, how to deal with pests and diseases, hints on harvesting, storing, freezing and cooking your produce, plus a useful gardening calendar and vegetable sowing chart.
