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.
