With modern houses tending to have smaller gardens and many old houses with larger gardens being divided into apartments, allotment gardening is becoming increasingly popular. Allotments also provide a haven in which to relax, meet friends and exchange produce and tips, as well as growing fruit, vegetables, and flowers. From the basics of planning and design, through dealing with pests and diseases, to suggesting the best crops to grow at different times of the year, this book guides the reader through all aspects of creating a thriving allotment garden.  Topics covered include tools and equipment, hard and soft landscaping, improving the soil, encouraging wildlife, and gardening all year. Rediscover the joy of peas fresh from the pod and just-dug potatoes in this informative guide.
