Perplexed by potatoes? Baffled by beans? Confused by courgettes?

Home-grown food means fresh, organic, tasty meals; less money spent in the supermarket; a lower carbon footprint and, best of all, fun! But how do you do it?

If you've never opened a seed packet before and want to grow your food but don't know where to start, this book is for you. It gives advice on everything from planting seeds to harvesting your crops and dealing with problems - and it doesn't matter whether you have a whole garden or just a patio, a balcony or a windowsill. How to Grow Your Food features a range of vegetables, fruit and herbs that are easy for the beginner to grow.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Forget Dr Hessayon (for now), this book contains excellent clear advice, does not patronise the newbie gardener and I believe (and hope!) it will give beginners the confidence to get started (whether from seed or plant), to succeed and therefore keep going and to explore other varieties in the future." * UrbanVegPatch blog *
"How to Grow Your Food provides simple, clear advice for all keen gardeners who enjoy growing their own food." * Positive News - Summer 2011 *
"Taking into account the limited space available to the urban gardener, Clift and Cuthbert have produced a tome that's perfect for the inner city horticulturalist. Growing fruit and vegetables is a big subject, and squeezing even a small selection of plants into such a small volume is no easy task. Happily the authors have done a good job of deciding what should go in, and what really had to be left out. For complete novices, this book is a helpful, unthreatening guide to their first few seasons as a gardener, whether they have a balcony, bare concrete, a patio or a larger patch of ground. It's not for committed gardeners but if you're looking for some measure of self-sustainability and aren't quite sure how to go about it, How to Grow Your Food: A Guide for Complete Beginners is an invaluable resource." * Andy McKee, The Ecologist *
"For a somplete novice this is a nice, helpful guide that you can refer to throughout your first few seasons as a gardener. It's clearly laid out and you'll have no trouble finding all the information you need." * Emma Cooper - author of The Alternative Kitchen Garden: An A to Z *
