Charles Dowding draws on his years of experience, to show how easy it is to start a new vegetable garden. Any plot -- whether a building site, overgrown with weeds or unwanted lawn -- can be turned into a beautiful and productive vegetable area. Charles's no-nonsense and straightforward advice is the perfect starting point for the beginner or experienced gardener.

The book takes you step-by-step through:

* Planning and early stages
* Clearing the ground
* Mulch - what, why, how?
* Minimizing digging
* Sowing and planting across the seasons
* Growing in polytunnels and greenhouses

It is filled with labour-saving ideas and the techniques that Charles uses to garden so successfully, and is illustrated throughout with photos and tales from Charles's first year in his new vegetable garden.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Another inspiring yet practical book from Charles Dowding."

-- Rozie Apps * Permaculture Magazine *

"It is impossible not to geel inspired by the unique combination of helpful guidance and enthusiastic encouragement of experimentation. As Charles proves, there is no plot of land too wild to tame, a building site too overgrown with weeds or an unwanted lawn that can't be turned into a productive and beautiful garden area."

-- Chris Allen * Gardening TImes *

"This is yet another book that will, as a manual, be on my bookshelf, but it will sure spend more in my hand than on the shelf."

-- Michael Smith * Green (Living) Review *

"How to Create a New Vegetable Garden is the best vegetable gardening book I have read for a long time."

-- ThePottingShed.co.uk

"If this doesn't encourage more of us to turn our gardens into productive and beautiful spaces, I don't know what will."

-- Anne Swithinbank, broadcaster and gardening writer

"Whether you're a dedicated gardener or a newcomer to the word of growing, take a look: Charles's methods work beautifully."

-- Mark Diacono, gardener, food writer and broadcaster

"How to clear weeds and grow great plants: Charles explains from a wealth of experience."

-- Sarah Raven, journalist and garden writer
