Praise for The Essential Allotment Guide

When I started on my allotment 2 years ago, being a complete novice I needed all the advice I could get. I bought a number of books on keeping allotments but found that page after page of instructions were impossible to assimilate.

Then I bought Essential Allotment Guide How to get the Best out of Your Plot and realised that this is what I had needed all along. The information is presented as if you are chatting to the author, with tips and humorous asides which make it much more easy to remember . If you only have only one book for your allotment make it this oneCarolina Nanny

“The Essential Allotment Guide” is written with the gardener in mind, with simple and concise information on subjects like how to get a plot, not always as easy as it sounds!

Clear that jungle of a plot you have just leased and turn it into a productive oasis.

I’ve been an allotment holder for years and wish I’d have had this to hand when I started out.

So glad I’ve got it now, who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

In his work Mr Harrison’s love for gardening comes forth as does his enthusiasm for cost effective food growing.
