Description

“Top grossing gardening book of 2019 in the UK.

“Huw Richards is the future of gardening” (The Guardian)

“This beautifully illustrated book teaches you what to do month-by month in order to have success in the garden”(The Sun)

“Ideal for new allotmenteers and gardeners starting to dabble in growing their own crops” (The English Garden)

In just one raised bed, greenfingered wunderkind Huw Richards shows you how to grow vegetables, organically, abundantly and inexpensively so you have something to harvest every month of the year.

Month by month, discover what you need to do and how to do it. Try becoming more self-sufficient in your allotment, a small garden, or even on a roof terrace.

Everything is explained in clear, photographed steps: building your bed, growing from seed, planting, feeding, and harvesting. Huw shows how to guarantee early success by starting off young plants on a windowsill. He suggests what to grow in each part of the bed, and provides alternative vegetables to swap in or out depending on what you like eating. No-dig gardening methods remove most of the back-breaking work, too.

Veg in One Bed goes beyond the inspiring demonstrations on his YouTube channel “Huw Richards – Grow Food Organically”. In this book he organises all his ideas and suggestions into a blueprint for growing your own vegetables month by month. Little growing experience? Only a small space? No matter – with Veg in One Bed, you can still eat food you have grown all through the year.”
