However, if I can grow some food for free that lasts throughout the summer and into the fall, I will be happy. This book is essentially a plant-by-plant guide, and it's pretty good at describing how to plant, harvest, and sustain a garden with the plants it covers.Once you’ve found a good site, Huw recommends his favourite low-maintenance, high-yield crops, covering first annuals, then perennials (the key to growing free food, as with minimal effort they can give you harvests year after year). This is a very informative book filled with lots of tips and tricks to start a garden from scratch without spending a ton of money.

Chapters include starting your own vegetable patch: producing your own compost (I am still not convinced this is a good idea in urban areas); sourcing seeds and plants for free; how to grow perennials; how to grow annuals; fight pests and diseases; and looking ahead. Years of experience and trying different things has taught Huw how to garden with little money (or without a garden) and he shows you how to do the same!

He’s helpful, optimistic, and instructive, and for anyone that loves gardening, this is a solid reference book. Key plant maintenance instructions are provided throughout the book, as well as how to fend off common pests and diseases.

I borrowed this book from our local library but this book would make a great addition to a personal collection for the home.
