Beginner's Garden: Your Simple Guide to Growing the Ultimate Kitchen Garden
Covering off the basics that every home cook and gardener has to have (and leaving out those plants that are too much hassle, or require too much attention), this book is aimed at the novice gardener. Including fruit, veges and herbs, the user will learn how to grow these from seed (or plant as a seedling if more appropriate), care for the plant and the best times to grow and pick your crops according to your home climate and environment. The Beginner's Garden is user-friendly and allows you to get the most out of your garden, showing you how best to spend your time, dependent on how much effort you want to put in. This is the book that every beginner gardener needs to own.
