The growing trend of home-based food production can only be further promoted by How To books such as this. Removing chemicals from the food chain and also saving money are key drivers of the trend, and of this book.

Soil, drought-proofing, propagation, pruning and pest and problem management are all addressed in a very accessible writing style. For those without a lot of space, adaptation to container gardening is well described. Many will find the calendar/diary aspect of the book invaluable, letting you know what should be done when, and in the context of your climate zone.
